Around 80% of marine debris is plastic, collects the European Union Agency for the Space Program (EUSPA, for its acronym in English). To address the global plastic pollution crisis, the European Commission has launched the EIC Horizon and Cassini Award for Digital Space Applications with the aim of developing space-based solutions to track and remove marine plastic pollution.
In this way, EUSPA and Mercator Ocean are jointly organizing a webinar, next Wednesday, January 18 at 3:30 p.m., in which the bases of the award will be explained, which is aimed at marine or digital applications that solve problems or satisfy needs related to the detection and monitoring of plastic pollution in rivers, lakes, coasts and coastal areas with the aim of preventing it.
