Event: environmental challenges and digital technology: exploring opportunities for collaboration in Oxfordshire10 May 2015
15 June 2015, West Wing, Saïd 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 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 to explore current work and opportunities surrounding digital technology as a response to some of today’s most pressing environmental challenges.
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.
