OCRE Earth observation services funding call

ESA actively promotes uptake of state-of-the-art ICT platform resources for EO exploitation by European research activities, This uptake phase is supported by opportunities to access these resources free-at-point-of-use, implemented via vouchers mechanisms. Today two initiatives are in place, one sponsored by ESA, one sponsored by the European Commission allowing research activities to request vouchers that can be spent for commercial EO platform services to accelerate research.

Specifically OCRE published the announcement of the upcoming 1st call for Earth Observation for your attention.

First action is required from EO platform providers to qualify after the call is published in October, afterwards researchers can request vouchers from beginning of next year.
