According to the organization's homepage, the hackathon is a "perfect place where you can test out crazy ideas."
The Green Tech Copernicus hackathon is a 48-hour challenge where participants compete amongst themselves to find the best solution to the issues presented in the program. The challenges concern land monitoring and climate change and use the world's largest land monitoring satellite Copernicus.
No prior knowledge about Copernicus data is needed to participate. Work will happen in teams but if you don't have a team, you will find one during the hackathon. Support, mentors, access to data and space and infrastructure to create innovation will be provided.
Participation is free of charge and anyone above 18, anywhere in the world can join in. Applications are already open at this site.
Prior to the hackathon, three preparation webinars will take place. Participants will have the opportunity to gain practical knowledge of Copernicus satellite data. Register for the webinars here.
