The European Space Agency (ESA) is launching the EO Clinic (Earth Observation Clinic), a rapid-response mechanism for small-scale and exploratory uses of satellite EO information in support of a wide range of projects and activities specific to International Development. The EO Clinic will consist of “on-call” technically pre-qualified teams of EO service suppliers in ESA member states ready to help development projects with a comprehensive range of skills and experience in terms of geospatial product generation and analyis, based on a large variety of satellite data.
This activity is also an opportunity to explore more innovative EO products related to developing or improving methodologies for deriving socio-economic and environmental parameters and indicators.
Starting in March 2019, the EO Clinic will be open to support requests by key development banks and agencies. The support teams will be ready to meet the short delivery timescales often required by the development sector, targeting a maximum of 3 months from request to solution.
