Invitation for Training Class on One Belt and One Road Hyperspectral Remote Sensing and Precision Agriculture
The “Belt and Road” science and technology training class on Hyperspectral Remote Sensing and Precision Agriculture will be held on November 1-15, 2019, at Sanya, Hainan province, China. The training course, as one of series of science and technology training courses initiated by the Chinese Academy of Sciences for One Belt and One Road and adjacent countries, is sponsored by the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth (RADI), Chinese Academy of Sciences. The training theme is “Supporting Precision Agriculture Using Hyperspectral Remote Sensing Technology”. The training aims to help the Agro-informatics scientists and managers from One Belt and One Road and adjacent countries to further understand the real challenges and to master current urgent technologies for modern agriculture, and the ultimate goal is to work together to address global challenges such as climate change and food security by establishing long-term international cooperation with One Belt and One Road and adjacent countries.
