Knowledge management has been recognized as a critical enabling factor for healthy agri-food systems, required to generate contextual information, processes and experiences, in order to improve productivity, increase profitability, reliability and resilience. Blockchain technology for data management ensures maximum transparency and protection / confidentiality in the collection, sharing and use of contributor data. This guarantees the customer the traceability (origin, acquisition methods, etc.), the validity (maintenance of data) and the exploitability of all data exchanged and used. In this session on technologies and practices for privacy and self sovereign identity: there will be some messages from key players working on this topic who are unable to attend in person, Monique Morrow (https://www.moniquemorrow.com/humanized-internet), and Emmanuel Aldeguer (https://smartfarmers.org/). Jim Wilgenbusch will give a short introduction on mapping regulations and frameworks for responsible data to international technical standards. Gideon Kruseman coordinates the informal group of CGIAR IRB folks and pushing an agenda for better privacy protection while ensuring the maximum possible level of open data.
