University of Leicester School of Business (ULSB) and Poltava State Agrarian University (PSAU) cordially invite you to attend the International Conference on Industry 4.0 for Agri-food Supply Chains: Addressing Socio-economic and Environmental Challenges in Ukraine - a hybrid conference at College Court, Leicester, United Kingdom and online.
The war in Ukraine is doing untold damage to food supply chains. Food products consumed locally and exports will be under increased scrutiny for their quality and safety due to damage to infrastructure and the environment, as well as human resources issues. This conference intends to bring together relevant expertise in support of novel and innovative solutions for improved management of agri-food supply chains (resilience, sustainability, and ecological embeddedness) and to develop competitive marketing strategies via traceability for food security, safety, and quality by connecting the strategic management of socio-economic systems at national level with tactics at the supply chain level supported by Industry 4.0 technologies.
