Deadline has been extended! More days to apply and become the 1st Earth Observation Evangelist - Advocate the benefits of EO in your sector!

Submitted by Natassa Antoniou on 09 March 2021


EO Evangelist Programme

The FIRE project is bringing forward the novel concept of Earth Observation (EO) Evangelists, inviting professionals across the FIRE sectors (agriculture, energy, raw materials, infrastructure, marine, and urban) to advocate the benefits of EO to their peers. FIRE is looking for six impactful, motivated storytellers to promote the global benefits of EO in a way that will resonate with their target audiences. The selected EO Evangelists should have strong background knowledge of their respective sectors and ideally, have personal experience to share on how EO has helped improve their business and added value. The EO Evangelists should understand the commercial pain and gain points of their sectors and be able to communicate easily with other professionals in their sector. Ultimately, they will play the role of an “influencer”.

How to apply
- Make sure you read the Ultimate Guide for EO Evangelists.
- Film a 2 minute video describing yourself and your suitability (Remember to provide us the link to your video)
- Explain your motivation in 200-400 words, why you want to become the first EO Evangelist
- Show us your public presence, links to any publications or public presentations you have done in the last 24 months
- Provide us with the links to the professional social media accounts you regularly use

Twelve shortlisted candidates (two from each sector) will be invited to a follow-up interview (April 2021). A jury composed by four FIRE consortium partners will select the six most promising candidates to sign a contract with FIRE and become the first ever EO Evangelists in their sectors.

Deadline: 16th of April 2021, 17:00 CET
