Organic Confluences Summit | AgTech Series

Add to Calendar Thu, 10 Feb 2022 09:00:00 -0800 Thu, 10 Feb 2022 14:30:00 -0800 Organic Confluences Summit | AgTech Series

The Organic Center is collaborating with the USDA ERS and Purdue University on a virtual conference series and hackathon examining agricultural technology (AgTech) in organic.

The conferences will examine potential opportunities for technology to support the organic sector, pitfalls when it comes to access and equity in AgTech, historical and current examples of AgTech exacerbating the pre-existing structures of racism in the food system, and methods for analyzing AgTech’s fit within organic ideals. The two conferences will be followed by a hackathon, in collaboration with the Gathering for Open Ag Technology (GOAT). 

All our events are free and will take place virtually.

BECOME A SPONSOR

Position yourself as a leader in the convergence of scientific, consumer, industry, farmer, and policy collaborations to understand organic’s current impact on mitigating climate change and direction for the future. Your brand will be recognized and promoted through e-blasts, social media promo and event signage as well as in product placement on the floor of the summit. Your team will also benefit by being provided complimentary registrations to summit.

The next Organic Confluences Summit will provide a venue for organic stakeholders and AgTech innovators to match their needs and priorities, identifying tactics to make technology more equitable, and usable to all farmers. The conference will bring together organic and transitioning farmers, innovators, scientists, industry members, policy makers and educators. Programming will be highly interactive including panels, lightning presentations and roundtable discussions in the form of breakout sessions. Organic farmers will be able to guide the development of new AgTech, and adopt the tools that continue to grow the industry and meet the needs of organic stakeholders.
