Definiens GMES Award

Definiens GMES Award for Innovation and Research with Definiens eCognition™ Technology

Extended deadline submissions: Feb 20th, 2007
Dear GMES Partner,
Your work contributes significantly to the development of operational services from remote sensing imagery and geospatial data, which is the major goal of the European GMES. We are proud that Definiens eCognition™ Technology benefits GMES service chains by providing accurate, cost-efficient and reliable information from remote sensing data; therefore, we want to thank our users and honour their work with the two Definiens awards:
Definiens GMES Innovation Award 2007 for successful GMES Services
We will help the Definiens GMES Innovation Award winner to further increase quality and service automation by awarding a Definiens Developer and Definiens eCognition™ Server license, four days of Definiens training and a professionally written case study.
Definiens GMES Research Award 2007 for leading edge research work using Definiens eCognition™ within GMES or related services
The Definiens GMES Research Award winner will receive an entry to IGARSS 2007 and the unique opportunity to meet Nobel Laureate and Definiens founder Prof. Gerd Binnig at Definiens Munich to present his/her work.
The main award evaluation criteria will be customer satisfaction, the merit of the envisaged service roll-out and the degree of production chain innovation for increased automation and standardization. Mark Doherty (European Space Agency), Christine Bernot (European Commission) and Prof. Gerd Binnig (Definiens AG) will form the steering committee to select the best contributions.
