GrowAgri Space, Cyber & GIS Seminar

March 25 @ 9:00 am - March 26 @ 4:30 pm

Free

There is considerable development in precision agriculture and a significant strand of this is the reliance on high resolution and accurate data.

This two-day seminar, delivered by Malvern-based software solutions company Borwell, will give attendees an introduction into work currently being conducted in the space sector, to inform of the level of correlation that can be achieved between space assets and those on the ground. It will also explore opportunities for further commercialising space infrastructure within an agricultural or horticultural context.

It will also explore how GIS (Geographic Information Systems) could improve software tools available within the farming sector to make spatial data more useful, further allowing attendees to innovate or adapt existing products and services.

With the high level of focus on data, the bootcamp will conclude with cyber tools that will best respond to the challenges within the farming sector.

To support SMEs who are looking to diversify into the agri-tech sector GrowAgri Worcestershire has a range of grants from £1,000 upwards, to support the purchase of capital equipment. For full terms & conditions, please email growagri@wcg.ac.uk or call 0330 135 7179.
