Following the great success of previous years, EARSC is pleased to announce the 2019 European EO Services Company Award.
The name of the winner will be revealed at the EARSC 30th Anniversary cocktail, 20th June in Brussels.
The candidates will be judged against the following criteria:
• Has successfully developed EO services for a target market (sector or geographic)
• Has made a strong contribution to a defining European programme (eg. Copernicus, Inspire, ESA projects, etc)
• Has exhibited good revenue and/or employment growth.
All EO Services Companies are invited to nominate companies for the award; you may nominate yourselves but if you do, you must also nominate another company ie make 2 nominations. If you don’t nominate yourself, you can nominate just one company if you wish. You do not have to nominate an EARSC member. Each nomination MAY be accompanied by a single-sentence “We nominate xyz because the merits are….”.
All companies nominated will then go into a vote by all EARSC members so that the finalists for the award will have been selected by their peers. This step will demonstrate that the finalists are all respected by their partners and competitors.
The top five companies voted by the members will then be asked to provide a short justification against each of the criteria described above as to why they should be considered for the EARSC European EO Services Company award. The winner will be selected by an international, independent jury comprised of recognised experts.
Nominations must be received by noon on 21st April
On 22nd April, a second mail will be sent to EARSC members with a list of companies. Each EARSC member is invited to vote for 2 companies from the list. All votes will remain confidential to the EARSC secretariat. The deadline for voting will be 05th May.
6th May, a mail will be sent to the 5 finalists, informing them of their nomination by their peers and asking them to provide the short justification on which the jury will base their decision. Deadline of 15th May.
