The U.K. Food Standards Agency (FSA) has issued a call for research exploring how the Internet of Things (IoT) could affect food safety. Working with The IT as a Utility Network Plus, FSA seeks short-term pilot studies “intended to test new ideas or create novel linkages between research areas.” In particular, the joint initiative seeks to focus on (i) “IoT data, data standards and sharing”; (ii) “IoT transport and food, particularly temperature control”; (iii) “organizing hackathon events to exploit, disseminate and excite opportunities of IoT from farm to table”; and (iv) “what happens to food in people’s homes.” FSA will accept submissions until November 2, 2015.
