Agri-Tech Hackathon – 48 hours to save the world!

July 6 @ 8:00 am - July 7 @ 5:00 pm
Future Business Centre, Kings Hedges Road
Cambridge, Cambridgeshire CB4 2HY United Kingdom

Changes to the UK climate will impact our ability to produce food - predictions include periods of too much or too little water, increasing average and extreme temperatures, and sea level rise.

However with the right approaches and technologies there is an opportunity to mitigate these impacts and to embrace the change.

If constraints such as water availability and soil fertility are managed, agriculture and forestry may be able to increase production with warmer weather and longer growing seasons. Offering  adaptation-related goods and services may provide economic opportunities for UK businesses in global markets.

So our next Hackathon is calling on you to rise to the biggest challenge and think about solutions.
