Forth Environmental Resilience Array - December 2021 image #1

Sam Barnett from Forth Environmental Resilience Array introduced their project, hosted by the University of Stirling at the EAUC-Scotland Forum Meeting in December 2021.

The Forth Environmental Resilience Array website says:

"The Forth Environmental Resilience Array (Forth-ERA) is the first flagship multi million-pound investment programme through Scotland’s International Environment Centre, funded as part of the Stirling and Clackmannanshire City Region Deal. 
Forth ERA will provide the region with the world’s first green recovery platform, creating a regional living laboratory across the Forth Valley.  It will provide communities, agencies, businesses and organisations access with real-time environmental data which ensures the environment is at the heart of decision making.  
Over the next two years, Forth ERA will be designed and established to provide a state-of-the-art monitoring system, made possible through innovative digital fabric solutions, sensor technologies, satellite data and artificial intelligence to provide vital information on water quality and quantity, alongside a wide range of environmental monitoring data sets, informing decision making, helping businesses to adopt more sustainable practices, supporting policy and regulation and building community resilience.
