10 more Copernicus Hackathon organisers have been selected

After the third cut-off date in May 2019, 10 more Copernicus Hackathon organisers had been selected!

Computer programmers, entrepreneurs, thematic experts, graphic designers and other creative talents are coming together from all over Europe to collaborate on the development of new software based on Copernicus Earth observation data.

Ideally, each team will comprise experts with skills relevant to software development, including computer programmers, graphic and interface designers, GIS and EO experts, project managers and topic related experts (e.g. agriculture, energy, forestry, oil & gas…). All participants to the Copernicus Hackathons shall be resident of one of the Copernicus participating countries (EU Member States + Norway and Iceland) or have established their organisation in one of the respective countries.

The winning team also receives access to the Copernicus Accelerator – a 12-month coaching scheme organised by the European Commission. In addition, the organiser of the Copernicus Hackathon often offers additional prizes to the teams.
