Call for proposals always open
Portugal space is encouraging applications to the European Space Agency's (ESA) tender for Earth Observation projects, under the FUTURE EO programme. Applications are always open.
Applications may be submitted to projects related to the several elements of block 4 under Future EO-1, the first phase of the Future EO programme. Therefore, they're seeking projects under the areas of “Grand Science Challenges”, “EO for a Resilient Society”, “Artificial Intelligence for EO”, “Regional Initiatives” and “EO for Civil Security”.
The contracts stemming from the tender will be limited to a value of up to 150 thousand euros and will last no more than 12 months.
Participants will have to demonstrate the innovative nature of their proposals and, if applicable, the support of relevant stakeholders. In the Grand Science Challenges category, they will need to demonstrate the scientific excellence of the proposed activity.
ESA's Future EO is the Research and Innovation Framework Programme for Earth Observation in Europe. Its purpose is to stimulate the ever-evolving sector and foster new business opportunities while developing groundbreaking technologies necessary to handle future challenges.
