Join to learn more about the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative's Food and Agriculture Cyberinformatics and Tools (FACT) initiative. FACT seeks to catalyze activities that harness big data for synthesizing new knowledge, making predictive decisions, and fostering data-supported innovation in agriculture. Projects funded through FACT will work to examine the value of data for small and large farmers, agricultural and food industries, and gain an understanding of how data can impact the agricultural supply chain, reduce food waste and loss, improve consumer health, environmental and natural resource management, affect the structure of U.S. food and agriculture sectors, and increase U.S. competitiveness. The webinar will provide a description of the FACT initiative and its priorities as well as information on the application process and general tips for developing a competitive proposal.
