Open Opportunities for Researchers
The Open Science Earth Observation Cloud Poland call offers scientists the opportunity to exploit a full archive of optical EO data using a dedicated cloud computing infrastructure for science, applications and technological innovation.
The S3VT call is open to relevant and interested groups and individuals worldwide; group responses are particularly welcome.
Interested users may - at any time - submit proposals for the use of Swarm validated Level 1b and Level 2 data through a dedicated interface.
