The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) UK/Australia Earth Observation AgroClimate Programme, also known as EO4AgroClimate, is a £4.5M international EO activity that brings together UK and Australian expertise in space enabled data, technology and modelling capabilities to build new collaborative trade opportunities while also addressing key agricultural, environmental and climate related challenges.
It will use satellite remote sensing data, technology and modelling capabilities to enable farming in both countries to become climate resilient while supporting the UK commitment to cut emissions by 78% by 2035 and to achieve net-zero by 2050.
This event is an extension of a shared vision between the UK and Australia to foster innovative research and collaboration in the field of Earth Observation (EO), specifically addressing the crucial intersection of agriculture and climate change.
The EO4Agroclimate Sandpit represents a unique opportunity within this broader programme. The event seeks to create a collaborative environment where innovative ideas can be developed, refined, and brought to fruition in the form of funded projects.
