Since 2016, the European Commission has established the Copernicus Accelerator as part of its Copernicus Start-up Programme. Through the Copernicus Accelerator, fifty promising start–ups using Copernicus data and information receive support from experienced mentors and work with them on advancing their business over a period of ten months.
For the first time, half of the spots are allocated through an Open Call, to which start-ups can apply. The final participants thereof are selected through a selection process by a panel of experienced judges. Besides a video and a pitch deck, applicants for the Open Call need to provide a standard recommendation letter from an established organisation with experience or interest in Earth Observation.
The deadline for the open call application closes on 15 September 2018, at 23:59 CEST.
