WHAT IS EOVATION CITY & CLIMATE ABOUT?

senitnel odrážka  EOVation City & Climate is a hackathon for innovation organized by the business incubator ESA BIC Prague. The main technological partner is the global giant in IT – IBM.

senitnel odrážka  The goal of this competition is to create a prototype with business potential that can be pitched in 7 minutes. This prototype should be focused on using satellite and climate data in services and products adapting cities to climate change.

senitnel odrážka  Teams composed of 2-5 multidisciplinary participants will have 24 hours to try to find solutions how to make our cities cleaner, healthier, safer and more prosperous.

CHALLENGES

 TOPICS FOR HACKING:

Climate change in city life

(light pollution, temperature map, smog, ecological footprint, etc.)

Smart City

(smart traffic, smart urbanisms, life quality index, etc.)

Urban development

(urban sprawl, vegetation diminution, health of greenery, etc.)

INSPIRATIONAL CHALLENGES:

senitnel odrážka   Create service or a support tool for a decision making process that will help cities to adapt to climate change

senitnel odrážka   Determine life quality index (air quality, greenery, traffic density, etc.) compared to other cities, countries and average levels

senitnel odrážka   Develop a game (e.g online, board game) that would bring attention to Earth observation

senitnel odrážka   Develop an app that uses existing data to identify dangerous conditions for people to take part in everyday life (smog, acid rain, high CO2 levels, low oxygen levels, etc.)

senitnel odrážka   Define health/quality state of big green areas in cities

senitnel odrážka   Identify a method in which satellite data could help us to create the ideal place for recreation for the public insides and outside of the cities

senitnel odrážka   Simplify identification of new sources of renewable energy (wind, solar, wave, etc.) with help of publicly available climate/ Earth observation data

SPECIAL CHALLENGE: HOW TO PREPARE BRNO FOR CLIMATE CHANGE – BRNO CUBESAT CHALLENGE:

senitnel odrážka    The challenge is to design concept of Brno CubeSat that would be feasible and could help to improve the quality of life in Brno. There are no limits, let’s launch Brno into the orbit.
