About Us
We’re a group of creative thinkers who have built a business to change the world.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.

Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen.

She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way. When she reached the first hills of the Italic Mountains, she had a last view back on the skyline of her hometown Bookmarksgrove, the headline of Alphabet Village and the subline of her own road, the Line Lane.

Frequently Asked Questions - FAQs

How do we submit our proposal?
To submit your proposal you just have to send it by email to the moonshot@ptspace.pt until the 9th October 2020, 23h59 (CET). Remember the proposals should follow the structure presented in the chapter 4 of the Call for applications, not exceeding 40 pages, excluding annexes.

What kind of satellite data will be provided?
The use of satellite data is mandatory in this call, and there are no recommendations or restrictions to a specific dataset. Therefore, no specific data is provided. Teams should identify and justify in the proposals the data they intend to use and how they are going to access it and/or combine it (if it is the case) with AI processing techniques. Besides the publicly available satellite data (such as Copernicus from ESA), acquisition of specific Satellite data can be considered as one of costs to be covered by the award.

What languages can be used in the proposal/presentation?
Proposals and presentations should be prepared in English.

How many members can a team have?
There is no limit to the number of team elements, however the size of the team should be adequate to the proposed work plan.

Should the proposal include results or expected outcomes?
The proposals should follow the structure presented in the chapter 4 of the Call for applications. This structure includes a subsection on expected Outcomes under the Description of Work.

What kind of HR costs can be included in the proposal?
A list of the eligible expenses is provided in chapter 6 of the Call for applications. Expenditures on human resources are eligible as long as when dedicated to or associated with the development of R&D activities related to the implementation of the project and clearly justified.

Can a team outside Portugal apply?
Yes, non-national teams can participate either in close cooperation with Portuguese beneficiary institutions or by establishing themselves in the country. We can provide support in connecting teams to relevant institutions, if you contact us at moonshot@ptspace.pt. To be clear, the team doesn't need to already be established in Portugal - but to develop relevant work connected to Portugal throughout the project (this should be included in the proposal).

Is there a template for the Declarations of Commitment?
A template for the letters/declarations of commitments is available for download.
