From Simple to High-Tech: Technologies That Improve Lives

16th October 2018 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

From clean-burning stoves to robotic harvesters and smart-fridges, technological innovations are changing the way we interact with our food across the globe. Cheap and simple innovations in developing countries have the potential to improve basic conditions of daily life. High-tech innovations may help us be more sustainable and productive in the West, and have future applications in the developing world.

In this public event, hosted by Cambridge Global Food Security and part of the Festival of Ideas, Professor Jaideep Prabhu (Judge Business School), and Professor Steve Evans (Institute for Manufacturing), will explore some interesting technological extremes of the food world, and the role they have to play in improving lives and safeguarding our future. The session will be chaired by Dr Lara Allen.

For more information and how to register, from 24 September onwards.
