The Symposium is held every three years and focuses on how Earth Observation contributes to science and society, and how disruptive technologies and actors are changing the traditional Earth Observation landscape, which is also creating new opportunities for public and private sector interactions.

The team who is winning this prize is also encouraged to submit its winning idea as an abstract to the symposium, for presentation or poster. We'd like to thank Tartu Observatory and Tartu Ülikool for this possibility.
