GreenportLIVE: joining forces with drone and sensor technology for precision farming of the future

During the GreenportLIVE event, on Thursday 17 February, NL Space Campus joined forces with the cluster of drone and sensor technology Unmanned Valley from Valkenburg and Greenport Duin- en Bollenstreek. By bringing the ecosystems together, we encourage and facilitate networking, knowledge sharing and new innovations. More than 40 people were inherently interested in the subjects that were being presented by the partnering companies. They offered solutions for the cross-cultural implementation of using drones, sensors and (satellite)data for precision farming and bulb growers. With an audience ranging from farmers, startups, municipality, province, and drone companies, to precision agriculture entrepreneurs, this was a unique event. 

Together with Unmanned Valley and Greenport Duin- en Bollenstreek, we organised this event to connect the space cluster, drone organisations and innovative bulb and precision farmers. As NL Space Campus, we find it important to make this connection, offer a platform to technical developments and innovations and stimulate (accidental) encounters and knowledge sharing. With the intention and potential to create more collaborations, innovations and impactful business. 

 

We were very lucky to have Lisanne van Oosterhoud from FME moderate the entire event, for being an ambitious young professional in this field, she has an interest in technical innovations, sustainability and agriculture, and experience on stage. We started out with presentations from GreenportDB, TUDelft, NEO, CGI, Agrisim, AirHub and Geronimo.ai and moved on to exciting workshops where discussions were held about three different subjects.

 

The workshops

Workshop 1 by AirHub, Neo and Aerialtronics - Stronger together: “How can drones create value in crop guidance and crop and field monitoring with the help of satellite data?”

workshop 2 by CGI and Agrisim - Optimalisation and sustainability: "How can space data be used to make your business operations more sustainable and optimise your results for both greenhouse horticulture and open field cultivation?”

workshop 3: Geronimo.ai and Drone Flight Company - Transformation: "How can drone, remote sensing and AI information be applied in practice?"

 

During the workshops multiple notations were made that might turn into a practical pilot after bringing all the information together. A future event where we want to discuss concrete pilot projects is in the works. If you are interested in the complete recap of the discussions and/or would like to know more about this initiative and future events, you can get in contact with andries@greenportdb.nl or r.voeten@nlspacecampus.eu for more information.
