The InnoSpace Journey in Lund 2018
In 2018 Lund University hosted the special "InnoSpace" Journey for two weeks. The core objective of InnoSpace Journey was to ensure uptake and exploitation of Copernicus data, to address the challenges of climate change, as well as create awareness of both the availability and the potential applications of open Earth Observation (EO) data. The InnoSpace Journey aimed at fostering entrepreneurial thinking among students and future entrepreneurs deploying a learn-by-doing approach by:
- increasing awareness of downstream EO and Geographic Information Science (GIS) innovation opportunities;
- providing the skills and tools to translate ideas into end-user applications; and
- providing a protected testing-ground for entrepreneurial development in the field of climate change; and finally
- to develop a common inter-and trans disciplinary understanding of climate challenges and how they can be addressed using space data, Earth Observation and GIS. Within the five weeks, the participants move across three different European locations with two coaches, and team-up to create compelling sustainable solutions to real-world climate related issues.
