Environmental Sensing for Sustainable Development

Summary 

Environmental pollution is a major challenge facing society. To enable sustainable development of society and economy, effective monitoring and control of environmental pollution is key. Pollution of air and water and contamination of land due to industrial activities, wastes disposal, chemical and biological incidents, can cause serious harm to the health of the natural environment, and reduce the natural resources needed to sustain the healthy development of our society and economy. To address such environmental challenges, new technologies, policies and solutions are required.

In this workshop, we will bring together industry environmental experts, sensing technology providers and researchers into novel sensors to share knowledge on environmental challenges, state of the art commercial technologies, and developments in novel sensing approaches. The purpose of the event is to provide a cross-sectoral networking opportunity, to facilitate knowledge exchange, generate new ideas, collaborations and partnerships, and introduce technology developers to opportunities for funding of further work.
