Starting June 2, The Digital Farm, an NGO whose goal is to promote innovation and digitalization in agriculture, organized its fourth edition of “LFDay” (The Digital Farm Day in French). Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was adapted into a series of ten live conferences which will take place every 15 days from June until October. On the agenda: Agricultural, food and citizen issues.
French and international startups, research institutes, journalists and the general public are all invited. LFDay is a sort of ideas laboratory for the food and agricultural sectors. This new 100% digital and 100% online edition will once again allow the participants to discuss their visions and ambitions for the agricultural of today and tomorrow.
The opening event took place June 2 with the CEO of Danone, Emmanuel Faber, and Nicolas Chabanne, founder of the French brand “C’est qui le patron?” (“who’s the boss”). It opened with a conference on the theme: How is innovation transforming farmers into an actor of environmental performance?
Other conferences plan to address ways to promote locally sourced food chains, how startups can work together, or farmer ownership of data they provide.
