Context and challenge
EOVALUE is launching an open call for development of innovative applications integrating openly available datasets (incl. space and on site observations) and/or on-line services, adding value by creating new variables or indicators to support the EuroGEOSS initiative and in particular the Sustainable Development Goals or the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, or the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Other areas of application will be considered providing they address broad environmental or social themes across geographic scales.
The 20 best applicants will be awarded contracts by the JRC for a maximum of € 13.500 to develop the applications further, and take them to the stage of first public release within 3 months of signing the contracts. The winners will also be invited to present their applications to a dedicated international event co-organised by the European Commission. This will give visibility to the winning teams and provide opportunities for further development. Travel and daily allowance will be supported by the European Commission for 1 person from each winning team.
Deadline for submitting application concept, prototype, or user story (e.g. as document, slide presentation or video): 30 March 2019.
