Technology supported innovation and growth

Put the kettle on and join us for a catch up on a different IoT related discussion topic each week while our staff work from home during the COVID-19 outbreak.

This session, led by CENSIS staff Cade Wells and Michael Fletcher, will explore IoT and imaging systems as they apply to Scottish food and drink. You do not need to have an IoT project or be planning one in order to take part.

This discussion is aimed any anyone involved in Scottish food and drink – from farmers and producers to processors and executives, as well as retailers, policy makers and intermediaries working directly with industry. This is a big subject covering everything from how food is grown and livestock is managed to enhancing food compliance and safety and managing natural resources. On the day, the conversation will be guided by the interests of people on the call but could include:

  • Optimising crop growth and maximising crop yields
  • Livestock monitoring
  • Tracking equipment and the use of autonomous drone technology
  • Maintaining and monitoring the condition of production equipment
  • Compliance, safety, quality, provenance and authenticity recording in the food supply chain

How can I join?

The event will take place online using Zoom. Simply contact us by email if you’re interested and we’ll send you details of how to join in. You can join using audio or video, and you are very much encouraged to join in the conversation to add your own thoughts or ask questions.
