One of the current priorities of the European Commission is to maximise the adoption of Copernicus data and information in Europe, increase the programme's socio-economic benefits to the European Union and further support the competitiveness European Earth Observation industry. To achieve these objectives, it is essential to continue and optimise the Copernicus User Uptake activities.
This workshop will explore synergies between Copernicus User Uptake initiative at the European and national levels, focusing on instruments such as skills programmes, business-oriented initiatives and uptake by public users. It will also provide an opportunity for stakeholders from the Member States and the European Commission for an open discussion on the future evolution of Copernicus User Uptake activities.
This event is on invitation, and is open and free to registered participants.
