space4environment is part of two consortia which have been awarded a grant from the EU within the Horizon Europe programme.
The first of the projects "FAIRiCUBE" aims at enabling different stakeholders to provide, access, process and share gridded data and algorithms by means of a cross-cutting platform and framework that makes use of cube technologies, to unleash the potential of environmental, biodiversity and climate data through dedicated European data spaces. In the project, focus will be on the development of tools that enable users who are not intimately familiar with the worlds of remote sensing and machine learning to scope the requirements and costs of their desired analyses. space4environment will be responsible for one of the use cases on urban adaptation.
The second project "SELINA" will follow-up on preceding work on ecosystems and ecosystem services and develop, integrate and apply available methodologies, data and information to support protection, restoration and sustainable as well as climate-neutral use of ecosystems in the EU. space4environment will be mainly working on ecosystem type and ecosystem services mapping and assessments as well as ecosystem accounting.
Both projects will start their activities in July 2022.
