Earlier this month, e-shape launched a Call for EO-based products 2020 to onboard future partners in the e-shape consortium and to further expand the EuroGEO community.
The Call for EO-based products 2020 (launched on June 8th) addresses Earth Observation-based products contributing to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, Paris Agreement or Sendai Framework. Eligible entities have the unique opportunity to become a new project partner contributing to one of the 7 e-shape showcases targeting specific communities of users (agriculture, health, renewable energy, ecosystem, water, disasters, climate).
New e-shape pilots will benefit from a grant of up to EUR 50,000 as well as the e-shape project support including co-design methodologies, deployment support, users’ uptake, capacity building & liaison, sustainability & upscaling, communication, dissemination & Help Desk.
“e-shape is a great opportunity to support EuroGEO within GEO and to showcase the strengths and the tremendous contributions of Europe for and with users”, highlighted Thierry Ranchin, scientific coordinator of e-shape.
Onboarded partners will pass through an open, fair, and competitive process. On the e-shape website applicants will find the Guide for Applicants and the Application form. The Call for EO-based products 2020 will close on September 4th 2020 at 17:00 CET.
e-shape (EuroGEO Showcases: Applications Powered by Europe) is a project coordinated by ARMINES that was launched in May 2019. e-shape develops and promotes European Earth Observation capabilities with and for the users. By leveraging Copernicus, e-shape opens new opportunities to develop and expand its use, through existing European capacities, and develop research to business activities.
