The competition, split into two stages (Stage 1 - essay submission, Stage 2 - video submission), aims at bringing new ideas and proposals to tackle the challenges faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This was inspired by the recent NASA SpaceApps COVID-19 edition, which highlighted the many areas of life sciences which can be improved or monitored using space agency resources. We invite you to consider the current and ongoing changes in the monitoring indicators of the UN SDGs using Earth observation/remote sensing and global Earth system model-derived analysis products.
