Designed for students, engineers and entrepreneurs alike, EOvation® Warsaw is an event targeting creativity. EOvation is a mix of a traditional hackathon and a Start-up weekend. Throughout the weekend, teams will imagine and design innovative services and products derived from space technologies and space acquired data to solve the societal challenges that appeared due to climate change influence. An experienced support team will allow those participants with the best ideas, to create a start-up company, with the help of specialized incubators as well as the professional network they will encounter during the event.

EOvation Warsaw is an event organized in frame of the EO ClimLab project of European Space Agency, first of the four planned for 2017 Hacking events in Warsaw. The EO ClimLab is a collaborative research e-environment enabling the rapid development and prototyping of new Earth Observation (EO)-based products aiming to support adaptation and mitigation to climate change across multi-disciplinary societal and business themes (e.g. agriculture, health, risk management, infrastructure maintenance, education, outreach).

The EO ClimLab can be seen as kind of "Fablab" environment providing developers with the data, tools and knowledge needed to develop new products and services to enhance climate resilience.
Beyond the competition, EO ClimLab promotes the use of Earth Observation data for the benefit of the public at large as well as the future of our planet, by organizing such a large public event around space innovations.

EOvation® will be organised in Warsaw on the 22-23 of April. The main Organizer of the venue is Kapitech Company, an innovation lead of the EO ClimLab project, in cooperation with Brain Embassy and BE Involved project.

The event is targeting wide audience of Mazovia region, but is open as well for participants from other regions.
