The Advancing Digital Agriculture and Conservation a virtual, multi-day workshop aims to advance policy discussions to realize the promise of data applied to conservation in agriculture.
Workshop sessions will be held beginning at 9:00 a.m. CDT on May 20, May 27, May 29 and June 3. All sessions are 60-90 minutes and will be held via Zoom.
Workshop presentations and discussions will encompass policies that support development and deployment of new digital agricultural capabilities (e.g., privacy rules, standards, public investments, workforce training, infrastructure), as well as new digital capabilities that support policy innovations (e.g., more cost-effective conservation investments, more effective targeting of conservation practices, reducing transaction costs of administering incentive schemes).
By bringing the policy and research community together, this workshop series aims to move policy discussions forward and identify a set of policy-relevant research questions to support future work and intersections in these areas. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with panelists and each other to advance discussion and collaboration opportunities.
The workshop is organized by Farm Foundation, the Cornell University Initiative for Digital Agriculture (CIDA), the Center for the Economics of Sustainability at the University of Illinois and the University of Illinois Center for Digital Agriculture (CDA).
These workshop sessions, each with a unique focus, include a lineup of panelists and opportunities for questions and engagement with the panel and other attendees. Sessions 1-3 are open to researchers, industry leaders, and the general public.
This session is intended to be a working, collaborative opportunity for researchers and policy experts to network and plan opportunities for further action and research. Session 4 requires a separate registration and is open only to researchers, industry leaders, policy experts, and others actively engaged in research and policy planning who wish to contribute to addressing research and policy questions ignited by the workshop.
