Achieving Net Zero: Agritech Water Quality Online Hackathon

Thursday 30 September 2021


Join us to explore and discuss the challenges of improving water quality in the agritech sector, and to determine solutions to help achieve net Zero targets. This event is for anyone with a general interest in data-led solutions, and what support and opportunities exist for small businesses and entrepreneurs.

We will provide access to relevant data sets, provide a general introduction to the key topics, and then you'll have the opportunity to pick a topic and as a team, discuss and develop solutions with the support of specialist mentors.

Plymouth Marine Laboratory Challenge: Can we link agricultural practises to patterns in nutrient distribution in freshwater and English Channel coastal waters?

Rothamsted Research Challenge: What practises on land can be introduced to mitigate the transfer of nutrients (carbon and soil) under conditions of elevated rainfall?

National Physical Laboratory Challenge: Cost effective real-time Monitoring and Control-use of sensors and remote sensing

Met Office Challenge: Weather forecasts and extreme events - Data and Modelling

This event is being led by Rothamsted Research, the National Physical Laboratory, Plymouth Marine Laboratory and the Met Office, with a wealth of expertise from the Impact Lab.
