Event: environmental challenges and digital technology: exploring opportunities for collaboration in Oxfordshire

By | May 10, 2015

15 June 2015, West Wing, Said Business School, Park End Street, Oxford OX1 1HP

A collaborative discussion day for researchers, business, and public sector, hosted by the Environmental Change Institute‘s Agile Ox programme, focussing on local environmental problems and digital solutions.

Developments in affordable sensors, the Internet of Things, and accompanying step-change in potentials for data collection, analysis and visualisation have created new opportunities for the monitoring and management of environmental challenges.

This Knowledge Exchange dialogue event brings together groups and individuals from research, business, public sector and civic society, with an interest in digital technologies and programmes in the context of environmental issues facing Oxfordshire.

The event will begin with brief presentations showcasing some current environmentally-focused digital tech with its roots in Oxfordshire, before inviting attendees to share current interests, projects and needs. A buffet lunch will follow, moving to an opportunity for smaller group working in the early afternoon.
