The aim of this initiative is two-fold.
Firstly, it seeks to pioneer the development and validation of methods for effectively merging and integrating Earth Observation (EO) datasets, such as time series data, with (Multi Level) Agent-Based Models (ML-ABMs). These models will be focused on priority socio-economic processes.
Secondly, it offers an opportunity to explore how the intricate landscape of polycentric and multi-level decision-making can benefit from the timely and reliable information provided by remote sensing.
This information will be integrated into spatio-temporal processes, allowing for the modeling of past behaviors and the simulation/prediction of future scenarios. These capabilities will, in turn, support stakeholder deliberations and decision-making processes, particularly in the context of EU sector policies, with a strong alignment with the objectives of the Green Deal.
