Calling for ideas for next Earth Explorer

on 27 July 2020

The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) is inviting scientists to submit proposals for the next Earth Explorer mission. The call was launched by the European Space Agency (ESA), as part of ESA’s continuing commitment to realise cutting-edge satellite missions to advance the scientific understanding of our planet and to show how new technologies can be used in space.

The Call invites scientists working in Earth observation to submit ideas for ESA’s 11th Earth Explorer mission. The procedure for submitting an initial idea for this future mission begins with a letter of intent, which must be received by 18 September 2020.

Our planet works as a complex system that involves considerable natural variability, but human activity is taking its toll on many of these natural processes.

Earth Explorer missions are built in response to the needs of the scientific community in their quest to understand different aspects of the Earth system and the interactions that bind the system as a whole.

More information about the call can be found at this link.
