The latest instalment of the Copernicus ‘Eyes on Earth’ Roadshow will be organised as a fully digital/online event. Participants of all ages and from all across Europe will be able to attend interactive sessions designed to bring earth observation, space data, and the Copernicus programme closer to EU citizens. These remote sessions have been prepared to give participants all the benefits and of the previous Roadshow events – without even having to leave your home, office, school classroom, or university lecture hall. But wherever you are when you watch this exciting new Roadshow, please observe the social distancing and other hygiene rules that your national authorities have introduced.
About the Copernicus ‘Eyes on Earth’ Roadshow
The ‘Eyes on Earth’ Roadshow lets you explore how satellite information supports scientific understanding, policy making and business operations. Climate & weather, mobility & transport planning, renewables, air quality, freshwater availability and distribution, smart farming, financial risk management and critical infrastructure measurement are all domains where satellite data can add value.
This 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. No or limited knowledge of satellites, satellite data or remote sensing is needed; the Roadshow is suitable for non-experts.
The ‘Eyes on Earth’ Roadshow especially wants to encourage interest in Copernicus Earth Observation Programme amongst young people, students and entrepreneurs; demonstrate exciting careers opportunities in the (space) data driven industry; and help those to build a more successful business through the use of space data. This will be done through a series of five highly interactive events in five different EU Member States from June 2019 to June 2020.
The programme is a combination of plenary information sessions, masterclasses, and technical lectures, combining learning and doing. The masterclass uses a canvas developed by DotSpace foundation and has been successfully applied in several Dutch public authorities and private companies. The programme also includes an interactive and fun exposition of key stakeholders in the Copernicus System, services providers, and start-up companies. Below are the date and locations for the five roadshows.
