The Internet of Food is already changing our lives and livelihoods. For some, it is the most exciting development influencing global food systems. For others, it is the most worrying. For everyone, it is vital that we understand the opportunities and challenges it brings.

The Internet of Things for Food (IoT4F), Dublin 2020 will bring together thought leaders from industry, academia, regulation/NGO and investors to delve into this fascinating area, with powerful talks, thought-provoking academic sessions, industry showcases, and design and innovation activities and competitions.

Dublin is a small but exciting European capital city with a cultural heritage strongly associated with food, drink, agriculture and the environment. It is also home to the European operations of many leading global tech companies, making it a rich melting pot for IoT4F.
This will be a unique collaborative experience with networking opportunities for scientists, industry professionals, entrepreneurs and investors to meet and discover the future of food.
