The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service has released its latest Invitation to Tender, a funding opportunity to develop 'use-cases' using CAMS data.
Proving how Copernicus data can be applied to real-world challenges is an extremely important component of the work that the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service undertakes. Detailed case studies demonstrate the value that Copernicus adds and provide useful examples that help others to see how they in turn might use the data in their own line of work.
These scenarios - the professional sectors, users, data, products, tools and benefits - are often summarised as 'Use Cases'.
With this objective, the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) has released an Invitation to Tender (ITT), offering up to 95k euros per project for bidders to set up and demonstrate downstream public or commercial applications using one or more of the CAMS products as input.
The main geographical target of the applications must be the following countries in Eastern and Southern Europe: Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, France (South of 45°N), Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain.
Tenders are encouraged from a wide range of bidders including developers and innovators, small to medium specialist businesses, sectoral consultancies, R+D 'greenhouses' of universities. More detail on the Invitation to Tender is available in the Tenders section of the CAMS website.
