Join the OBSERVE competition and team with us in Thessaloniki

The OBSERVE project, a project funded by the European Commission under its FP7 program, is organising a competition which aims at promoting use of Earth Observation data in the Balkans.

Participants from the Balkans and beyond are invited to analyze given air quality data sets provided by the PROMOTE project and to report their findings to the organizers of the competition. The results shall describe typical phenomena that are contained in the data such as pollution levels, their spatial relationships, temporal evolutions, etc.

We expect to attract interest from academia (in particular, college students) as well as from individuals being employed by institutions that want to learn more about the potential of using Earth Observation data for the benefit of the Balkans
