Open Agriculture Initiative (OpenAg)

Welcome to our new site!

The MIT Media Lab Open Agriculture Initiative (OpenAg) is on a mission to create healthier, more engaging, and more inventive future food systems. We believe the precursor to a healthier and more sustainable food system will be the creation of an open-source ecosystem of food technologies that enable and promote transparency, networked experimentation, education, and hyper-local production. 

OpenAg brings together partners from industry, government, and academia in a  research collective that's creating collaborative tools and open technology platforms for the exploration of future food systems.
