After a successful first edition in October 2021, EFI’s Bioregions Facility organises the second edition of its Forestry Speed Dating to promote innovation and collaboration within the topic of Aerial inspection and remote sensing for forest management.

The Forestry Speed Dating on 22 November will feature the innovations Kelluu, ForestMap and My Sustainable Forest. Get in touch with the innovators behind these innovative remote sensing and aerial inspection services for forest inventory and monitoring, and hear about how they can help you save time and money on field work, or seek potential collaborations.

This hybrid event is organised back-to-back with Forest&Photonics 2021. Forest&Photonics 2021 takes place in-person in Joensuu, Finland (Original Sokos Hotel Kimmel) on 22 and 23 November. The registration to Forest&Photonics is independent from the one of the Forestry Speed Dating. If you are in Joensuu for Forest&Photonics, then you are invited to join us in EFI headquarters to meet some of the speakers and attendees face to face. Otherwise, you can join virtually on Zoom.
