Covering nearly 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, oceans play an outsized role in the health of our planet. They generate much of the oxygen we breathe, provide food and livelihoods for billions of people around the world, and support a vast and incredible array of species, many of which have not yet been discovered or described. An increasingly variable climate, rising sea levels, ocean pollution, and increased ocean acidity threaten human health, infrastructure, and the natural systems we rely on for life itself. The AI for Earth EU Oceans Award is focused on providing access to Azure compute resources and data science tools to Europe-based researchers who are focusing on addressing ocean-specific challenges.

The AI for Earth EU Oceans Award was announced and launched during the 2017 edition of the Our Oceans Conference, hosted by the European Commission in Malta. Applications may be submitted by European research institutions in the 28 EU Member States, or the European Economic Area (EEA), or research consortia that have at least one European partner.

To qualify for our awards program, applicants must be affiliated with an academic institution or non-profit research laboratory. In addition to individual investigator projects, we are interested in projects that will support access to services and projects that exemplify valued data to a broad community. Faculty, researchers, and graduate students are qualified to submit proposals for Azure awards—masters and undergraduate students require a faculty project supervisor to submit their proposals.Deadline: Proposals must be submitted on or before December 15, 2017.

The European Digital Skills Awards 2017 aim to showcase initiatives that develop the digital skills of Europeans in school, at work and in society in general. The initiatives should be easy to scale-up and replicate in other cities, regions, countries and sectors.

The winners and finalists will be selected in the following four categories:

  • Digital skills for all – developing digital skills to enable all citizens to be active in our digital society
  • Digital skills for the labour force – developing digital skills for the digital economy, e.g. upskilling and reskilling workers, jobseekers; actions on career advice and guidance
  • Digital skills for ICT professionals – developing high-level digital skills for ICT professionals in all industry sectors
  • Digital skills in education – transforming teaching and learning of digital skills in a lifelong learning perspective, including the training of teachers

To highlight the importance of closing the gender gap in digital skills, a fifth project selected from all the submissions that also promotes digital skills for women and girls will receive an award.

The winners will be awarded the European Digital Skills Awards by Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Digital Economy and Society at the Digital Skills and Jobs Coalition Conference that will take place in Brussels on 7th December 2017. Winners and finalists will be invited to exhibit their project at the Conference and will be featured by the European Commission in the media, website and newsletters. You can apply for the European Digital Skills Awards by filling in the application form by 1 November 2017. [+]
