S2 EP2: The Agri Living Lab

Series 2

Share this page

It’s estimated the world will need to feed 10 billion people before the end of the century. Yet at the same time, we are faced with a climate crisis that requires the urgent protection of our natural resources.

To meet these challenges, we need to focus on getting the most out of what we already have. We need more efficient farming methods that are kinder to the environment. We need sustainable, nature focused solutions. We need innovation.

So, how do we even begin? And how can satellites help?

The Agri-Living Lab at Westcott, launched at the 2021 Westcott Space Expo, is a new initiative aiming to connect the different players within the industry, with the goal of building this trust. By bringing technology provides, policymakers, scientists, and supply chains together, the Living Lab facilitates the co-design and co-creation of Agri-tech solutions. Technology is built with contribution from the end-users, to make efficient, scalable, solutions that are tested, and trusted by the industry.
