PARSEC SME Accelerator Call

Brussels, July 2019 - EARSC and the PARSEC consortium are happy to announce that foreseeably in Fall the Open Call for the PARSEC accelerator programme will start.

PARSEC is a business accelerator supporting the creation of new Earth Observation-based products and services. The accelerator targets SMEs, start-ups, entrepreneurs and researchers who want to have an impact on the emerging Food, Energy and Environment sectors. The holistic acceleration programme will distribute a total of €2.5 Million equity-free funding to 100 beneficiaries, alongside other key resources (coaching, matchmaking, promotion) needed to develop and launch 15 new products and services into the market.

Businesses selected will get access to a state-of-the-art datacube infrastructure based on rasdaman, the world-leading datacube analytics engine, which is a proven business accelerator. GeoMatrix will provide value-adding services to boost ramp-up of the SME's Earth Observation based services. A huge amount of data will be made readily available, ranging from DIASs to the data centers federating via rasdaman.

PARSEC is supported by the European Commission through an H2020 grant.
