Utilising EU Space data
Space is here – and the CASSINI Hackathon series invites participants to make use of the extraordinary data, signals, and information from the EU Space Programme, including Copernicus, Galileo and EGNOS. Hackathon competitors will use space technologies to develop their own innovative solutions for one of three challenges:
- Enabling green and sustainable investment.
- Innovating financial tools and technologies.
- Advancing global financial intelligence.
From the organisers: “At Space4Impact we are honoured to run the Swiss Edition of the CASSINI Hackathon for a second time. Switzerland combines cutting-edge research capabilities with a strong financial sector. These are the ideal ingredients to explore the utilization of satellite data for the topic of sustainable finance.”
