THE CHALLENGE

Fifty years after landing on the moon, we’re ready to take on a new challenge — this time back home.

Our oceans are drowning in waste. Whether you are a student, startup, research center or a university from anywhere around the world, we invite you to present the best solution to locate and monitor this waste on a planetary scale.

You will have access to AI Resources, Big Earth Data and Supercomputing. In 2020, a €500K award will be given at Web Summit to the team that developed the best solution.

€500K
award to perform further research in Portugal for up to 2 years.
