New REACT (EO4SDG) Competition

New REACT (EO4SDG) Competition

The mini projects for Sustainable Development Goals competition is an initiative of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Societies Technical Committee REACT (Remote sensing Environment, Analysis and Climate Technologies) to support science and to motivate local students to work together on a specific topic related to Earth Observation and Sustainable Development Goals (EO4SDG). The focus should be on local regional problems and how remote sensing can help to identify and quantify environmental/societal impact of a changing Earth.


All topics should be related to the awareness of the particular regional problems using remote sensing tools, induced through global change effects and how to improve the situation through sustainable acting. The projects can be submitted to one of the focused local area topics of the  IEEE GRSS Technical Committee REACT, dealing with the Pacific Islands, Agriculture and food security in India, floods and water security in Africa and Cryosphere changes in the Hindu Kush – Karakoram – Himalayas (HKH) region, but are not limited to these topic or regions.


30.09.2022 Proposal Submission
14.11.-15.11.2022  IDEATHON Workshop Publication


Two to three teams per local focus area will be awarded to support your ideas, which could be a non-cost-free training course, software product, computers/digital media or support to secure data downloads. The outcome of the students’ projects would be presented at the IEEE GRSS Magazine in March 2023.


The submitted report that will be evaluated should not exceed 5-7 pages (including references). There should be a clear objective and problem statement, the relevance to the SDGs and climate, the role of remote sensing to tackle the problem/issues, the description of the methods, results and current status, the broader impacts explained, and finalized with conclusion and outlook.


The submission of the reports should go to
