Sustainable Innovation Competitions

How to address Sustainable Development Goals using Earth Observation data from the Copernicus program?

Connecting with the European Earth Observation ecosystem.

Materials Innovation collaborated with Vito N.V. and Verhaert N.V. to organize an Sustainable Innovation Competition (Hackathon) during G-STIC 2019 in Brussels.

Materials Innovation was tasked to designing the hackathon journey, co-creating the three challenges, engaging and recruiting sponsors, facilitators and solvers from the European Earth Observation ecosystem, running pre-event online trainings and co-facilitating the event. More on the event details here.


Ensuring Sustainable Consumption and Production patterns

Among the three challenges the most popular one was the one related to SDG 12 (ensure a sustainable consumption and production patterns) focusing on Reduction of Environmental Pollution Risk using Earth Observation.

A very well defined challenge was possible by a close collaboration with the experts from the Exploration Geophysics Department at LTU Sweden.

Thanks to a close interaction with EIT Raw Materials and other partners of the event, Materials Innovation was capabale of bringing together highly skilled engineers and scientists across Europe which worked together solving the challenges during two and a half days.
