AHEAD 2017 workshop is sponsored by OECD’s Co-operative Research Programme on Biological Resource Management for Sustainable Agricultural Systems
On March 1st and 2nd VirtualVet and Epi-Connect hosted AHEAD 2017, a workshop to discuss the digital transformation opportunities in animal health, animal disease and animal drug usage. We intend to create a road-map with and for interested actors along the animal health value chain. This complex value chain starts, first and foremost with farmers. VirtualVet and Epi-Connect are adamant that farmers and the wider agri-food value chain, have yet to fully realise the true value or potential of on-farm, near real-time data, information and knowledge capture. The discussions during AHEAD 2017 are informing business models to drive a digital transformation in animal health data.
For a great review of the two day workshop, please visit Flavie’s blog, Epi-Connect .
We are thrilled and proud that Dr Flavie Tedder has secured the opportunity to publish the proceedings of AHEAD 2017 through FrontiersIn.org.
