The EARSC EO product award 2023 will recognize a value-added1 product that will support the Green Deal Agenda.
The European Commission is demonstrating unprecedented leadership with the Green Deal initiative to tackle climate change and will require an abundance of resources, including viable data and information which will allow governments to identify risks, tailor policy response and resource allocation, monitor progress and identify trends.
The green transition must be complemented by the continued use and improvement of new datasets. Combining satellite data with measurements from ground-based instruments and exploiting deep technological approaches (e.g. artificial intelligence and machine learning) makes it possible to have a wide range of operational applications and services contributing to the Green Deal.
European EO industry can help achieve the Green Deal set of policies by providing critical information to the Green Deal actions on climate, energy, agriculture, transport or environment.
Criteria to apply:
Companies registered in EU or ESA Member state countries.

1)Value-added Earth observation products are built upon EO satellite data. The raw data collected by Earth observation sensors is processed, analyzed, or interpreted in order to provide additional insights and value that may not be directly observable from the raw satellite data. These value-added products are typically generated through the application of algorithms, models, or other analytical techniques to the raw data, resulting in more meaningful and actionable information for users.
