We’re excited that Heidi Gautschi, Gianluigi Viscusi and Christopher Tucci from EPFL took the first step in evaluating the concrete value of open data for business and innovation. In their newly conducted report on the role, value and impact of open data for businesses within the food system, they:

  • outline exemplary companies and institutions publishing as well as using open data,
  • have a close look at the value of the Open Food Data Hackdays 2017 and the consequent incubation, both coordinated by, and
  • clarify how open data can be a catalyst for business.
