The EC and ESA invite you to attend an Industry Information day on the GMES Sentinel Data Policy to take place on 11 September 2009 in Brussels.

The meeting intends to inform about the GMES governance and information policy in general and the Sentinel Data Policy in particular. In addition, it provides a forum for discussions and for collecting views on the Sentinel Data Policy, especially from the European value adding and service industry, GMES services, other potential Sentinel data users, satellite data providers and distributors.


GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security) is an EC-led initiative to ensure Earth observation services on a sustainable basis, and tailored to the needs of users, including public policy makers and private citizens.

In the GMES Space Component, which guarantees access to a variety of Earth Observation (EO) data, EC and ESA are jointly funding the development of the Sentinel missions.

ESA and the EC are specifically working together to define the principles and implementation scheme of the Sentinel Data Policy.
