We all love to talk about digital technologies as easier, better, faster ways to do things. SRUCBytes are 20 minute sessions to give you insight into how new tech works, how it's actually being deployed in the natural economy sector and the real benefits it achieves.
SRUCBytes was funded by a Universities Innovation Fund grant to SRUC, provided by the Scottish Funding Council.
This talk is for any natural economy/agri-food sector professional or student interested in how distributed ledger technologies (DLT, of which blockchain is a type) can be applied in the sector.
The talk was created by SRUC’s Senior Challenge Research Fellow and Data Policy Lead Dr Hannah Rudman, when she previously worked for DLT platform developer SICCAR/Wallet. It was funded by a Universities Innovation Fund grant to SRUC, provided by the Scottish Funding Council.
Over 2.5 hours Hannah aims to give you an understanding of the impact of DLT and how it can improve natural products and businesses. She talks about technology in the sector and introduces common themes across use cases. The sessions will help you to confidently make strategic, informed business decisions and recommendations around implementing DLT solutions.
