Deadline: 2019-01-31 Award: €5,000 Open to: Everyone*
DLR is looking for innovative ideas that use Earth observation data to drive the sustainable management of our limited natural resources and foster human well-being.
In addition to using Copernicus data and other Earth observation satellite data, participants are encouraged to supplement their ideas with other sources of data, such as information generated by crowd-sourcing or in-situ measurements.
Ideas should support professionals working in these areas, inform the public, or empower public authorities to take action and solve issues on a local, national, or global scale.
Criteria that must be met:
- Benefit for society, human wellbeing, sustainable resource management
- Copernicus relevance (significance of the use of sentinel satellite data for realisation)
- Innovation and technological feasibility
- User acceptance (benefits to users and/or the general public, short path to practical use)
EUR 5,000 cash prize
Substantial satellite data quota worth EUR 5,000 (financial support by EC)
Access to the Copernicus Accelerator programme (if eligible)
