Organisation: ESA

Do you know someone who is in the early stages of their career, but already deserves recognition for their innovative use of Earth observation? If so, there is now a unique opportunity to nominate them for the new ESA–EGU Earth Observation Excellence Award.

New digital technologies such as big data and artificial intelligence are leading to a major transformation in Earth observation and opening up a wealth of opportunities for science and business alike. Embracing this new era, ESA and the European Geosciences Union (EGU) have opened a competition for an award in Earth observation excellence.

The new ESA–EGU Earth Observation Excellence Award sets out to recognise, encourage, support, and promote the scientific excellence of an individual scientist or a team, in accordance with ESA’s objectives and its contributions to addressing the challenges of our changing planet.

The achievements of the person or team you nominate should focus on science and applications based on Earth observations made by European satellites.
