– Organiser: Nature FIRST
– Language: English
– Virtual or in-person: Virtual

Join an online session where we will showcase the achievements, solutions, and technologies of Nature FIRST, a project focused on biodiversity preservation. Our goal is to gather feedback from key stakeholders in the ecosystem, as they are the future users of our technology.
The session will begin with an introduction to the project by Jan Kees Schakel from Sensing Clues, followed by a demonstration of our achievements and solutions.

After the demonstrations, we will open the floor to a Q&A session where you can ask questions and provide feedback. We hope to start a discussion about the ongoing challenges in biodiversity preservation and gather insights from key players in the field.
The session will take place on April 26, 14:00 CET. We look forward to your participation and contribution to this vital discussion. Please let us know if you can join by completing the form below. After completing the form, you will receive a link for the session!

About Nature FIRST project:

As a Horizon Europe project funded by the European Commission, Nature FIRST will develop predictive, proactive, and preventative tools for nature conservation for the next three years.

Stay tuned to learn more about how we combine forensic intelligence, remote sensing technologies and digital twins to protect and restore biodiversity in Europe and beyond. The tools we use are demonstrated in the following European regions:

  • The Carpathian Mountains, a 1,500 km-long range in Central and Eastern Europe.
  • The Danube Delta River is Europe’s largest remaining natural wetland. The more significant part of the Danube Delta lies in Romania, and a small part is in Ukraine.
  • The Stara Planina Mountains are a mountain range in the eastern part of the Balkan Peninsula.
  • And the Ancares y O Courel, the largest green reserve in Galicia, Spain.
