INSPIRE Conference – New Ways to Tackle Agriculture Challenges

The workshop aims to present the latest technologies and standardisation efforts in the agricultural domain in relation to the INSPIRE directive,  Agriculture Domain Working Group, Interest Group on Agricultural Data  and beyond. The aim is to provide new insights in data collected in agriculture through various technologies including big data techniques and advanced visualisations.

In addition to that, the main focus will be on standardisation efforts that enable to tackle some of the challenges in data exchange and sharing. The workshop content is not limited to technology. The floor will be given to initiatives involved in tackling agriculture challenges, such as the Copernicus World Alliance.

The workshop will have a limited number of presentations that will be followed by moderated discussions aiming at sharing experience between workshop participants and getting ideas for new solutions to face agriculture challenges.

The workshop is organised by the DataBio project.
