CollectiveCrunch selected into ESA Copernicus Accelerator Programme. The programme provides business and technical mentoring with the aim of developing and accelerating space-related business opportunities.
On the Copernicus Accelerator: “Earth observation and the big data it produces hold huge potential for the creation of innovative products and services. The Copernicus Masters is an international competition which awards prizes to innovative solutions, developments and ideas for business and society based on Earth observation data.”
For CollectiveCrunch satellite data are an important source of information. Making use of ESA’s climate and geo data gives us the depth and breadth of data we require to scale our solution.
Our mentor in the Copernicus programme is Wolfgang Wagner. Wolfgang is professor for remote sensing and head of the Department of Geodesy and Geoinformation at the Vienna University of Technology, Austria. His research in active microwave remote sensing has led to several free and open soil moisture data services operated within the framework of the Copernicus programme and EUMETSAT. He is also co-founder of the EODC Earth Observation Data Centre, a public-private partnership to establish collaborative cloud-based earth observation platforms and services.
We are excited to have Wolfgang as a mentor!
