Open Opportunities for Researchers
In the framework of a Copernicus collaborative agreement ESA and EUMETSAT is opening a call to relevant and interested groups and individuals worldwide top join the S6VT.
In this call ESA offers an opportunity for scientists and researchers to access Planet data (Planetscope and SkySat) products to support the assessment of the potential of such data as an ESA Third Party Mission.
The Dragon Cooperation Programme is a joint effort between ESA and the MOST/NRSCC.
The European Space Agency (ESA) jointly with the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) are pleased to announce the "Iris for ESA & CSA" Call for the scientific exploitation of GHGSAT-C1 ("Iris") Level-2 data.
ESA is pleased to announce the reopening of the Announcement of Opportunity (AO) call for the Aeolus Mission.
Within the framework of its Copernicus missions, ESA is pleased to announce the Sentinel-5 Precursor Calibration and Validation Team Call.
The Open Science Earth Observation (OSEO) call offers to scientists the opportunity to exploit at no cost a full archive of optical EO data for science, applications and technological innovation, by offering services which exploit state of the art ICT.
The S3VT call is open to relevant and interested groups and individuals worldwide; group responses are particularly welcome.
