AI2ES partners with the Climate Innovation Challenge Grant.

Google has launched the Climate Innovation Challenge, which will provide Google Cloud research credits to advance a better understanding of climate resilience and promising solutions to address urgent climate challenges.

Through the new program, individual climate researchers in higher education and not-for-profit research organizations can apply for Google Cloud credit grants of up to $100,000 to accelerate projects with Google’s data analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) cloud services, from Google Earth Engine (EE) to Google Public Datasets like the one from the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Google will also provide researchers with access to technical training and mentoring, to help jumpstart their work.

Google will work with specialist partners in environmental organizations, agriculture, and carbon reduction to help evaluate proposals and select participants. AI2ES is the first partner in this initiative. The partnership will provide impactful outreach and increase awareness.
