ESA is offering over 100 opportunities for industry, start-ups and scientific institutions to develop innovative ideas that bring Earth observation science closer to society.
ESA's EO Science for Society programme aims to promote scientific exploitation of satellite data, pioneer novel applications and develop pre-commercial services while maximising the use of information and communications technologies.
The initiative also promotes community engagement and dialogue to increase the exploitation of scientific data while fostering an ‘open science' environment through the use of digital and social media. In addition, the use Earth observation for the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals is a key goal.
