The 2 Seas area has proclaimed several challenges regarding the innovation and environmental issues around remote sensing. For example; to strengthen innovation more R&D and exploitation opportunities, climate adaptation, preservation of biodiversity and natural resources is needed. Agriculture, Nature and Water & Infrastructure are the three major sectors in the 2 Seas area. They need to face these challenges by tackling it with the right innovations in their fields. More use and development of RS and data processing will create solutions and will also improve efficiency of these sectors.

OBSTACLES:

+ Lack of knowledge/awareness of the possibilities of RS
+ RS-SMEs are not fully aware of the role they can play
+ A lack of suitable test/demo locations
+ Unclear policy on legislation on the use of drones for RS.

CHALLENGES:

Aggregation of sector demands translation to RS-SMEs
Knowledge institutes sites for demonstrating (new) RS-applications
Harmonisation of legislation/regulations and a structure (durable cluster) to work together on these issues

WHAT IS NEEDED?

A cross border innovation cluster and the necessary conditions for innovation in the field of remote sensing and advanced data communication & processing based on needs of priority sectors Agriculture, Nature and Water & Infrastructure. A durable innovation cluster will lead to following benefits:

 

+ Cross border cooperation in these sector to come to aggregation of demands
+ Acceleration of creation of innovative remote sensing
Products & services substantial use of remote sensing
+ Improved business operation in these sectors clarification of different national legislations
A joint lobby for better regulations to create business opportunities
