Outputs and Results
In this section we publish documents related to the project such as press release, presentations and other output.
Terms and concepts
In the DisruptAqua NPA project, Nofima will analyze applications, limitations, costs, and benefits related to the use of blockchain technology in seafood supply chains, and in particular evaluate the pros and cons of having a blockchain-based food traceability system compared to a traditional electronic traceability system. The first step in this process is to establish and agree on terms and concepts, and this is done in the report "An overview of terms and concepts related to the potential application of blockchain-based traceability systems as applied in seafood production". In this report, key terms relating to traceability, authenticity, and blockchain technology are explained, based largely on well-established definitions and on existing international standards, where such exist.
