Deadline: 30 April 2021
Themes: Maritime pollution and circular economy
The van Allen Foundation launched a new Call for innovative ideas for the detection and monitoring of marine litter in the western Mediterranean
The van Allen Foundation, a partnership foundation of the University of Montpellier, and IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society, invite public and private organizations to propose ideas and suggestions aimed at addressing the issue of detection and tracking marine pollution and litter in the western part of the Mediterranean Sea.
Although the emphasis is on the contribution of space techniques, the call for ideas is thus open to studies of numerical simulation, physics of measurement, measurements in the laboratory or at sea, and the application of artificial intelligence for the recognition of polluted pixels, or the carrying of sensors of opportunity, etc.
The Call for ideas is addressed to scientists and engineers, as well as to students, working in public or private laboratories or entities in France and worldwide.
Applications must reach the Van Allen Foundation Secretariat before April 30, 2021.
