GEO blog article | EYWA system wins the 1st EIC Horizon Prize on Early Warning for Epidemics

Read the dedicated article in GEO blog regarding our new onboarded pilot EYWA for winning the first “EIC Horizon Prize on Early Warning for Epidemics”. 

In April 2018, the European Commission launched a €5 million prize for an early warning system for epidemics. It was one of six European Innovation Council (EIC) Horizon Prizes, which were part of the EIC pilot run under the Horizon 2020 European Research & Innovation programme.

The prize rewards the development of a scalable, reliable and cost-effective early warning prototype system based on Earth observation data to forecast and monitor outbreaks of vector-borne diseases.

This accomplishment is a significant milestone and an exceptional example of the unlimited Earth Observation power and the societal benefits that can derive from harnessing space technology.
