ABSTRACT

The bioeconomy field covers the agricultural domain, all manufacturing sectors and associated services that involve any form of biological resources. Thereby, the research on bioeconomy is dependent on the data collection both about biological resources (such as plants, animals, and microorganisms) and about the connex phenomena. The remote sensing techniques provide an excellent way for the acquisition of information without making physical contact with these biological resources. So that, the remote sensing finds the applicability in numerous sectors of research on bioeconomy, such as agriculture, horticulture, fisheries and aquaculture, plant and animal breeding, forestry, energy, as well as food, beverage, chemicals, pharmaceutical, wood, paper, leather and textile industries. There are a range of datasets that can be collected for an individual research or for a research group with specific aims. In this study, the current limitations and challenges of the remote sensing techniques are identified and the future solutions are synthesized and evaluated aiming that these techniques to be integrated into bioeconomy research services. The state-of-the-art on development of the tools and technologies of remote sensing and the potential practical benefits of application of these techniques on the bioeconomy research will be presented.
