G4AW third Call published
Last Friday March 17, 2017 the third Call of the Geodata for Agriculture and Water (G4AW) Facility was officially published in the Government Gazette. The G4AW Facility stimulates public-private partnerships and is supporting initiatives to set up large-scale, demand-driven, and user-tailored satellite-based service chains.
The Geodata for Agriculture and Water Facility started in 2013 by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and is supported by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment. NSO is commissioned to execute this programme.
The ultimate goal is to improve the output of the agricultural and fishing sector by providing food producers with relevant information, advice or financial products. This will lead to improved sustainable food production and/or improved efficiency in the use of inputs for food production and/or improved income and improved water management in your country.
Planning of the third Call for Proposals G4AW Facility consists of two phases: a non-obligatory and non-binding advice based on the Request for Advisory Opinion (short project proposal) and a subsidy grant Application (full project proposal).
- Submission deadline for Request for Advisory Opinion: June 14, 2017
