Dear colleagues
6 EU projects are involved in the organization of the Nairobi INSPIRE
Hackathon 2019 including EO4Agri. The hackathon should serve as a platform
to showcase our results to different communities. This time, it will be
mainly agriculture communities in Africa.
The registration is now open and you are cordially invited to join the
efforts to create some solutions or come up with some ideas for sustainable
agriculture in Africa.
The main page of the event is at
There are several predefined themes, some of them linked to GFAR, e.g. Food
Security in Relation to Earth Observation (GEOSS and COPERNICUS Relevance)
led by me.
Hackathon and Ideathlon is organized remotely. In Nairobi there will be
presentation of results. Anybody, who is interested is invited cooperate
with us.
I am sure that some outputs could be interested also for IGAD
