EOVation (Innovation in Earth Observation for Climate) is a form of the hackathon, an event that comprises the hackathon and start-up weekend activities, organised in the frame of the EO ClimLab Project.
EOVation is an intensive 24 hours marathon the major goal of which is to answer the global Climate change problems. Such event gathers together not only developers but designers, scientists, journalists and marketing experts together with the people from the business community.
EOVation opens a possibility for the participating communities for intensive brainstorming, on the hot subjects raised by society, in various economic sectors.The major obstacle to enter such event is the ability to create a mobile and web applications is low, enabling innovation that will help to solve the relevant problems put in the competition connected with Climate change and the creation of operable prototypes within tight time constraints.EOVation aims to connect the Earth Observation Technology with real world problems caused by the drastic change of climate in the past decades and, the predictions for it to change even more in future.
This particulat EOVation hackathon will focus on challenges resulting from climate change impacting the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia regions. See how by using satellite data you can contribute to help the developing world in solving their current problems
