A recent study by ASCII’s Peter Klimek in collaboration with the Complexity Science Hub shows interdependencies in the global food supply. Here, the researchers uncovered the profound – also indirect – effects of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
Global supply shortages of antibiotics are currently on the rise. A study by the newly founded Supply Chain Intelligence Institute Austria (ASCII) Hub now deciphers the causes of the shortage: First and foremost, the increasing concentration of production in two countries – China and India. Investing in a well-developed data infrastructure can help remedy the situation.
