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
