Sharing is caring – Environmental data transfer

Transferring environmental data from projects to future projects can reduce environmental monitoring requirements, avoiding the duplication of work and decreasing monitoring costs. Data transferability can pave the ground for an easier, streamlined environmental impact assessment and consenting process. However, aspects such as confidentiality agreements with technology developers and lack of organisation of existing information may hinder data transferability. This session looks at how data platforms and test centres can facilitate environmental data transfer.
