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.

ESA's Swarm satellites are seeing fine details in one of the most difficult layers of Earth's magnetic field to unpick – as well as our planet's magnetic history imprinted on Earth's crust.
Earth's magnetic field can be thought of as a huge cocoon, protecting us from cosmic radiation and charged particles that bombard our planet in solar wind. Without it, life as we know it would not exist.
Top Story on Copernicus
Just over a week after being lofted into orbit, the European Union's Sentinel-2B satellite delivered its first images of Earth, offering a glimpse of the ‘colour vision' it will provide for the Copernicus environmental monitoring programme.
With a swath width of 290 km, the satellite's first acquisition began over the Baltic Sea and made a strip-like observation through eastern Europe, ending in northern Libya.
