Feeding people involves different forms of collaboration among multiple actors and stakeholders. These play different roles in the supply chain and the related processes across organizations and communities that collect raw materials, transform them and then distribute food products to the end consumers, both worldwide and on the zero mile food scale. ICTs and mobile technologies are more and more pervasively adopted to support the overall process and make collaboration seamless and sustainable in the often complex interplay of global and (increasingly more) local levels.
The School program will be articulated along a number of themes; that address from different perspectives the overall socio-technical system linking food producers and food consumers, and the inherent challenges of designing, developing and maintaining computational means supporting its actors.
