AI4EO is an initiative of the European Space Agency (ESA) Φ-lab, implemented by a consortium of private companies and start-ups consisting of SpaceTec Partners, Planetek Italia, Sinergise, GMATICS and EarthPulse. The group's mission is to organise innovative AI-based challenges to foster the growth and engagement of the AI4EO community. It provides a platform for researchers and programmers to showcase their work and make a tangible contribution to solving some of society's most pressing challenges. As a partner and contributor of our expertise in data access/processing and AI, we're excited to invite you to the next challenge - the OrbitalAI Challenge - where you can showcase your innovative solutions for in-orbit data processing.
We're pleased to make available the recordings of our Global Earth Monitor project (GEM) webinar held on 14 February 2023. The various stakeholders from the Earth Observation field and beyond presented the results of the project (with a particular focus on the use cases results). The morning session provided a good overview of the project, while the afternoon sessions focused on the guided exercises to show GEM outcomes and use of the developed tools.
The first edition of the CryoHackathon, organised by the Early Career Glaciologist Group (EGG) of the International Glaciological Society (IGS), ended successfully on Sunday 19 February 2023. The overall goal of all participants having an exciting weekend of fun and working together on cryosphere-related projects was achieved in a nice, inclusive and respectful atmosphere! We're happy to be a partner and enable the winning team to further develop their idea with the help of Sentinel Hub services.
Join us on February 27th 2023 at 4pm CET and discover the incredible power of Earth Observation (EO) data for search and rescue missions! Our special guest, Benjamin Kuo, will share his expertise on the various types of imagery data available, including commercial options from Airbus, Maxar, and Capella, as well as open Sentinel data. You'll get a first-hand look at the pros, cons, and challenges of working with EO data, and hear inspiring examples of how satellite data has aided in successful search and rescue operations. Don't miss this exciting opportunity - secure your spot today!
The European Union's Copernicus programme is taking a big leap forward with the launch of its new Copernicus Data Access Service. As announced in December, this innovative project, led by experienced players, will transform the way users process and access vast amounts of open and free Earth Observation (EO) data from the Copernicus Sentinels and Contributing Missions. You can now access EO data through the Copernicus Browser and unleash its full potential.
Evolution of the Copernicus Land Service Portfolio - The new Horizon Europe project, EvoLand, was officially launched on 17–18 January 2023 in Leuven, Belgium. The project aims to integrate novel EO and in-situ data with advanced machine learning methods to develop innovative approaches, algorithms, and candidate Copernicus Land Monitoring Service (CLMS) prototypes for continuous monitoring of land surface status, dynamics, and biomass. Sinergise is one of ten partners from five EU countries in this three-year research and development project.
Join the Global Earth Monitor webinar on 14 February 2023! - The H2020 Global Earth Monitoring (GEM) project, which aims to address the challenge of continuously monitoring large areas in a sustainable and cost-effective way, is entering its final phase. We invite you to participate in our webinar organized in collaboration with project partners TomTom, European Union Satellite Centre, Technische Universität München and meteoblue AG to learn all about the project results and follow step-by-step exercises using the resources of GEM.
European Space Agency (ESA) has signed a letter of intent with Sinergise to foster Earth observation (EO) entrepreneurship and encourage the development of EO commercial solutions. The collaboration will target companies supported by ESA Φ-lab, the InCubed EO commercialisation programme, ESA’s Business Incubation Centres (ESA BICs) and ESA Technology Brokers.
Together with partners in the T-Systems International consortium, Sinergise has signed a contract with the European Space Agency and the European Commission to set up a Copernicus Space Component Data Access (CDAS) system worth a total of €150 million. On Friday, December 16, the new Copernicus Data Access Service kicked-off, taking the European Union Copernicus program to the next level and ensuring the data to make the greatest possible impact to institutional users, the research community, the commercial sector as well as to every citizen of our planet.
We look forward to meeting you in person at the 26th MARS conference, which will be held in Barcelona, Spain, from 12 to 14 September. The conference is jointly organised by the Joint Research Centre, the Spanish Paying Agency and the Ministry of Climate Action, Food and Rural Agenda of Catalonia, and brings together professionals from the field of management and control of area-based subsidy schemes. It addresses the technologies, methods and protocols that ensure effectiveness and efficiency in this field.
