EarthBridge: Building Bridges between Earth Observation and Environmental Sciences

Duration: 01/2023 – 01/2026

Summary: EarthBridge aims to develop and further improve environmental Earth Observation (EO) tools that are robust, transferable, and applicable across disciplines and landscapes. The project brings together EO and environmental sciences expertise to bridge the existing gaps between these two disciplines at educational, practical, and governmental levels.

EarthBridge is focused on the development and application of methods for monitoring, restoration, and conservation of biodiversity in agricultural landscapes.

Through the twinning of the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague (CZU) and two internationally-leading universities: Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) and Alma Mater Studiorum – Universitá di Bologna (UNIBO), EarthBridge aims to further improve the use of environmental EO tools by a wider community.

EarthBridge is a three-year project starting in January 2023. EarthBridge activities, grouped into five work packages (WPs), will ensure knowledge transfer and exchange by developing new methods and training new professionals in environmental EO.

Funding: EarthBridge receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon Coordination and Support Actions under Grant Agreement No 101079310.
