Blockchain for
Agri-Food Educators! 

Blockchain for Agri-Food Educators is an innovative project that seeks to transform the provision of education in the agribusiness, food science, and nutrition sectors through the strategic utilization of blockchain technology. By developing innovative pedagogical approaches that encompass a wide range of theories, methods, processes, and teaching concepts, this project aims to enable higher education educators to take the lead in digitizing the food sector while simultaneously addressing critical societal challenges within the food supply chain.

Blockchain technology has the potential to transform any sector of the economy, and the food sector is no exception. It has the potential to enable more transparency and traceability, greater efficiency, and more secure and resilient supply chains.
Frank Yiannas,

Deputy Commissioner for
Food Policy and Response at the US FDA


Blockchain is an important technological innovation that is rapidly gaining traction across many industries, including the food supply chain. Its ability to increase transparency, efficiency, and accountability in the food supply chain is truly transformative and has the potential to improve food safety, reduce waste, and increase profits for everyone involved.

- Tom Mastrobuon, CFO of AgroFresh

The Blockchain for Agri-Food Educators project aims to address the challenges faced by the agri-food sector in the European Union, which is the largest industrial manufacturing sector with an annual turnover exceeding €1.109 trillion and 4.57 million employees. The COVID-19 pandemic has put unprecedented pressure on food supply chains, exacerbating inefficiencies and food fraud.

Project Activities

Guide to Blockchain Education

will recommend effective pedagogic strategies for teaching digital skills in blockchain integration in agrifood education. Its results include a research report and a guide to aid understanding of the relationship between blockchain and key agrifood challenges / opportunities

Open Education Resources for Blockchain Education in the Agrifood sector

will provide lecturers with pre-made resources for in-person or digital classes. This will help facilitate the transition to digital education in a field of study that is becoming increasingly digital. The project will produce three key results: the Blockchain Education in the Agrifood Sector Open Education Resources, the Classroom Teaching Pack, and the Online Course for Direct Study.

Dissemination and Sustainability

will promote the adoption of Blockchain for Agri-food Educators among partners, peers, networks, and the wider education and agri-food sector. Its goal is to ensure the long-term sustainability and impact of the project.
