PROGRAMME

The 2-day Eyes on Earth roadshows let you explore how satellite information can help improve operational applications in the public and private sectors, such as climate and weather, mobility & transport planning, renewables, air quality, fresh water availability and distribution, smart farming, financial risk management and critical infrastructure.

 

The roadshow will inspire you about the many applications of space data, let you explore hands on how space data can be applied in your daily life or work environment and provide you with the tools to act.

 

The programme outline is as follows. Stay tuned as more information (and detailed timetable) will become available.

 

 

BENEFITS OF JOINING

  • Informative plenary sessions:
    • Opening speakers that inform and inspire the audience.
    • Presentations about Copernicus services and data access by expert organizations such as the European Space Agency.
  • Interactive break-out sessions:
    • Interactive training sessions led by experts on Copernicus services and applications for masterclasses. For a group of people, we can offer a session tailored to your organization or domain area of interest.
    • Technical lectures about the Copernicus services, radar applications and how to find and access the data.
  • Free of charge for participants.
  • No or limited knowledge of satellites, satellite data or remote sensing is needed; the sessions are suitable for a non-expert audience.
  • Participants can suggest topics that are of interest (from a research or operational service perspective). Topics suggested to date are: the river Danube and the Black Sea (navigation, marine planning and safety, environment), forestry, agriculture, flooding, earth quakes and inner city pollution.
  • Work with (international) experts in the field, such as from the entrusted entities EUMETSAT, JRC, ECMWF
  • Learn about the skills needed for a career in remote sensing but also what opportunities there are for jobs or entrepreneurship.
  • Expo with information about organisations, products and services such as the Copernicus Data and Information Access Services (DIAS), the Copernicus hackathon, incubator and accelerator.
  • For people with a limited amount of time, the programme is modular such that parts can be attended individually (for example only the plenary presentations or technical lectures).
