Environmental Space Living Lab & Cotie Launch Event (Petroc)

Petroc College is pleased to announce the launch of The Environmental Space Living Lab (ESLL) alongside the recently-completed phase II of their Cotie Innovation Launchpad facility. Join them to celebrate this important milestone in the development of our support for local businesses and start-ups to harness the power of innovative technology.

The Environmental Space Living Lab combines cutting-edge equipment and real-world test environments to enable farmers and others to address agricultural, aquacultural and broader environmental challenges by adopting innovative and space-enabled technologies through collaboration and co-creation with innovators, technology providers and academia.

Funded by the Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and led by the Satellite Applications Catapult, the ESLL will ultimately open in three locations and will act as a showcase environment to kick-start trials and demonstrations of sustainable agricultural and environmental technology in the South West. Petroc’s ESLL is the first of these three locations to open its doors.
