Webinar to focus on AgriTech and future of farming

The team spearheading Barclays’ Thriving Local Economies initiative for Taunton Deane will be hosting an hour-long webinar on Tuesday, May 18, from 11am to 12pm about the changing face of agriculture and how AgriTech might be able to help.

Through the Eagle Labs AgriTech programme, Barclays will showcase innovations in a number of areas that have been created for, or can be applied to the agricultural industry. The aim is to support UK agriculture and the food supply chain, to help it to become the most digitally-savvy farm force globally through research, events, collaboration and projects to help the entire food supply chain, from farmer to retailer, understand how technology can support and accelerate their business.

There will be three guest speakers, each of whom will touch on different themes and offer insight from a variety of businesses within the industry. On the panel will be Jeremy Moody, Secretary and Adviser, CAAV, Dr Catherine E.D Rees, Chief Scientific Officer, PBD Biotech and Rob Sanders, Co-Founder, Glas Data. Joining the guest speakers from Barclays will be Oliver McEntyre, National Strategy Director, Barclays Agriculture and Wendy Hewitson, AgriTech Programme Manager, Barclays Eagle Labs.
