Project: Next Generation of Trustworthy Agri-Data Management - EnTrust
EnTrust brings together 16 leading research institutions and enterprise from 5 different countries across Europe to establish a Doctoral Network that will train a cohort of 11 Doctoral Researchers (DRs) in an intersectoral, international and interdisciplinary setting with the aim to establish a new generation of Data Executives.

More about the project
The EnTrust project will demonstrate how agri-data from farmers can be made available, governed, and exploited, with benefits shared in a fair way. EnTrust will enable Doctoral researchers (DRs) to excel in their future career perspectives in the intersection between computing, information systems and social science and thus, provide the DRs with enhanced career perspectives, combined with an innovation-oriented mind-set and creativity, thereby forming a new generation of Data Executives. EnTrust will addresses current challenges of data governance in agriculture and farming and will provide scientific results on:
adoption factors of Data Technologies to allow farmers to unlock data potential
enhanced Data Governance practices to ensure a fair and trustworthy agri-data space
new types of innovative Business models for fair value sharing
This is combined with network training and research and outreach to maximize the project impact. EnTrust provides input in science, data governance and agricultural and many other sectors. EnTrust supports the European Data Strategy foreseeing European Data Spaces as the key instrument to democratize the access to data and unlock its full value, for the agri-food sector.
