REWARDING NATURE HACK FOLLOW-UP EVENT

Friday, SEPTEMBER 28, 2018

 

The Hackathon

This day features a follow-up event of the Rewarding Nature Hackathon held in April at the Capigi Conference, where four thought-provoking technical solutions were pitched for monitoring herbal grasslands from space (see results here). In the meantime, traction has been kept with both partners and teams evaluating how they can commit and incorporate the herbal rich grasslands monitoring into their activities or services.

We at FarmHack want to better support these teams and help take their propositions to the next level. For this reason, as a comeback day, we have mobilized companies and organizations to assist these teams with access to capital, varied assignments, technical expertise and business development advice! In this manner, we intend that the ideas once born in a hackathon are not created-and-then-forgotten but are matched accordingly with relevant expertise or clients to see them through real-life implementations!

KPN will be present as our main event sponsor and will also be providing tailored/individual advice in our afternoon strategizing sessions on the topics of smart agriculture, digital portfolio and business development. They will also have an eye open for a promising team to be included in their accelerator program as they are interested in methods for digitizing the agricultural value chains.

RVO will give us an up-to date perspective on how and what they are planning to monitor and recognize from satellite (and photo) images that might aid their routine processes at RVO.

Dr. Anton Vrieling will join us all the way from Twente University to talk about his research on vegetation phenology, spatio-temporal modelling and how drought detection or seasonal productivity can support crop/livestock insurance models. We will be also getting hands-on with him in an exercise about maize performance and drought for 2018!

Finally, we have indagated around our herbal rich grassland partners for new datasets in their possession that can be made available for the duration of this hackathon! So come explore them!

 

Participation

The Rewarding Nature Follow-Up Event is primarily intended for the teams that have joined the Rewarding Nature Hackathon in April as an opportunity to support their solutions forward. However, some of the teams might need an extra hand for crunching scripts or for a gain advantage with your unique business perspective!

So as a GISer, Remote Senser, Herbal Grasslands fanate, Business Developer you do not want to do the Rewarding Nature Follow-Up! Join us if you want to strengthen one of the teams or if you are just interested in herbs, grasslands or the remotely sensed Earth; we welcome you with open doors to the Rewarding Nature Follow-Up!

when: friday 28 September 2018, 10:00 - 16: 30h

where: FarmHack office, Duivendaal 1, Wageningen

We look forward to seeing you on the drawing boards, computer screens, and pitch floor!
