Knowledge for better food systems

Funding: Digital technology and soils projects

28 Jun 2019

UK- based cross-disciplinary research programme Ensemble is offering funding for projects on digital technology and soils. Two grants of £7,500 are available.

Some possible questions for such projects to address include (but are not limited to):

  • How can we use soil data to gain a better understanding of droughts and other extreme events?
  • What data science techniques can we use to identify potential tipping points in soil ecosystems?
  • Can we combine data on differing spatial and temporal scales to improve estimations of agricultural yield?
  • Can we apply techniques such as sentiment analysis on citizen science data to reduce uncertainty?

For more details, see here. The deadline for applications is 28 June 2019.
