The VitiGEOSS project invites you to take part in our first webinar to explore the current and future challenges of the wine sector and the use of open Earth Observation services.
During the webinar, project partners will present how VitiGEOSS is working to address the challenges by developing an innovative vineyard management solution that integrates information on climate predictions, crop phenology, irrigation, fertilisation, disease, and business and sustainability management. Furthermore, a sneak peek into the VitiGEOSS platform will be showcased for the first time, while wine producers involved in the project will give us their insights on how these services can help them to improve their operations.
At the end of the webinar, the audience will be invited to provide their thoughts and interests in an interactive session, which will help to shape the topics for the upcoming project’s webinars.
