Animal Health Space Sandpit

Animal Health and Space Sandpit

Animal Health Innovation Network (AHIN) is hosting an Animal Health and Space Sandpit on 2nd December 2021. This initiative, led jointly by the Universities of Southampton and Surrey, arose out of the Space and Animal Health workshop, held in February 2021, as part of the Hampshire and Surrey Space Hub activity; and the EM3 High Potential Opportunity (Animal Health) scoping discussions, respectively.

The aim of this sandpit is to facilitate collaboration between the Animal Health and Space Sectors to stimulate cross-disciplinary research projects. One example could be exploiting satellite data to monitor animal, human and environmental contributions to antimicrobial resistance and the impact on health.

The attendees will include people from APHA, the Pirbright Institute, Academia and the business community, the themes that will be discussed are as follows:

  1. Theme 1: Ecosystem Health – track and monitor changes in biodiversity/supply chains and food system.
  2. Theme 2: Surveillance and modelling- new threat prediction and early intervention models
