AI4Copernicus is organising a series of info webinars, where experts from the corresponding domains of the project like Energy, Security, Health and Agriculture, provide useful information and tips concerning the AI4Copernicus Open Calls submission process which is now open.

The third AI4Copernicus café was held on 31 August 2021. This session’s speaker was Lorenzo Bruzzone, from partner University of Trento, who provided information on Agriculture.

Talk Title: Copernicus data in Agriculture and Food Security domains

More specifically, four sessions are scheduled to be held virtually, from May to September, with a duration of 30 minutes, each time on a different domain.
