The PARSEC Accelerator is a business accelerator funded by the Horizon 2020 programme. It supports SMEs, start-ups and researchers in bringing Earth Observation-based innovations to the emerging food, energy, and environment sectors. The two-stage acceleration programme will distribute a total of €2.5 Million equity-free funding, develop a suite of business catalysts for transforming data into market-ready services, and provide access to other key resources (coaching, matchmaking, promotion). Running between May 2019 and October 2021, PARSEC fosters cross-sectoral and cross-border cluster-facilitated innovation, creating new value chains and opening new markets. As a result of the second and last stage of the accelerator, 15 new Earth Observation-based products and services will be launched into the market.
