Fair and Smart Data - the Currency for Global Sustainability

Fair & Smart Data (FSD) is an action-oriented transdisciplinary research programme that puts smallholder farmers at the centre of sustainable development. FSD studies the concept of fair and smart data in global agricultural value networks, emphasising smallholder farmers' economic, social, and environmental challenges in the Global South.  

With its focus on global agricultural commodities such as coffee and cocoa, FSD wants to contribute to the transition to new value networks that empower people and protect the planet. This transition will rely on using data and digital technology in a smart and fair way, developing sustainable business models, and ensuring inclusive governance of supply chains.
