Green Data webinars
14 December, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 24 February, 2021 @ 3:00 pm
Replacing the physical Green Data conference which usually takes place in London during the winter, these free-to-attend online events will focus on COVID-19’s impact on environmental data management, innovation and green economic recovery and environmental data and future of planning.
Joining EIC and sponsor the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) will be a range of experts and high-level speakers who will share their insight around the key topics.
Matthew Farrow, Director of Policy at both ACE and EIC will chair these events, with further speakers and guests outlined below and more details to be shared soon. Register individually via the links below.
24 February 2021 at 12.00pm: Environmental data and the future of planning
Featuring Suki Coe (Jacobs), Piers Edgell (Landmark Information), James Harris (Royal Town Planning Institute)
A data-driven planning system is essential if we are to meet expectations for a simpler planning process that will boost post-pandemic growth and better reflect local community aspirations. What role for environmental data and how can it be integrated holistically into the UK’s new Geospatial Strategy?
Replay! COVID-19’s impact on environmental data management
Featuring Simon Gardener (NERC), Dr Kevin Turpin (Jacobs), Nigel Jones (Extrium), Sarah Pyatt (Mott MacDonald) and Dr Andrew Engeli (Department of Health and Social Care)
The pandemic has led to an urgent need to analyse, use and combine different data sets to gain a rapid understanding the spread and impact of the virus, and its impact on a breadth of social and environmental factors. This has created both challenges and opportunities for the way we manage and use environmental data.
Replay! Innovation and a green economic recovery
Featuring Chris Fry (Accelar Ltd), Jennifer Jennings (NERC), Katie Mills (Schneider Electric) and Mark Penny (Energy Solutions UK)
With an ambitious environmental agenda, and bold aspirations for a green recovery, how can we nurture and support innovation in the environmental business sector to create the ‘green jobs’ we need? How can the public sector and environmental businesses work together to create the right framework for innovation?
