Our MissioN

The goal of IC3-FOODS is to bring the brightest minds in ontological and mathematical modeling from around the world together with domain experts whose work reside along the Environment⇔Ag⇔Food⇔Diet⇔Health knowledge spectrum in order to develop coordinated ecosystems of technologies for solving the worlds most vexing health, social, and environmental challenges related to food.

Assembling experts in the form of annual conferences, a living consortium, and central hub provides opportunities to work together to aggregate, design, and develop standardized, human and machine readable vocabularies and ontologies that advance the nascent fields of Food Systems, Food, and Health Informatics--enabling vast technology ecosystems capable of uniting disciplines and enabling powerful insights and discovery across knowledge domains.

Together, we are designing and building the ontological and computational infrastructure to build the Semantic Web of Food, Health, and Sustainability.
