ESA’s Conference- “Copernicus- Sentinels Serving Society and the Environment”

“Copernicus- Sentinels Serving Society and the Environment”
12 May 2014 – 13 May 2014, Athens, Greece

copernicusgreece2014_webgraphic_4vEuropean Commission are jointly organising a conference on “Copernicus- Sentinels Serving Society and the Environment”, ushering in a new era for the most important Earth Observation Programme to date.

The conference will focus on how geospatial information and services empower public administrations and business to improve public services, to better their relations with the citizens and customers respectively, and to take better informed decisions on future territorial development, with socio-economic and environmental considerations in mind.

Europe’s satellite infrastructure Copernicus combines data from Earth Observation satellites and other sources to offer a hub of geospatial information expected to improve knowledge and generate new jobs in Europe’s regions and cities.

This conference will highlight the launch of sentinels marking a new era for Copernicus and will:

  • Provide public administrations and businesses with practical examples of geospatial solutions in sectors such as the environment and risk management, energy, territorial planning and e-governance
  • Provide the space community with insights into the current and future needs of end-users and downstream service providers so as to discuss what more can be done (in terms of policy, governance, technology etc) to enable them to make the most of Copernicus.
