Banner workshop on Copernicus uptake by public authorities

Various previous workshops, studies and public consultations raised the point that the potential of the programme is not being fully exploited by public authorities. Therefore, this workshop aims to

  • identify areas with potential
  • exchange best practices between participants to aid the uptake of Copernicus by public authorities
  • discuss what the main obstacles are and how best to overcome them


The potential of data and information continually made available by the Copernicus ecosystem is enormous. Commercial stakeholders are hard at work to adapt to this new offer. Other potential user communities have yet to discover the potential of Copernicus in their domains or have to find ways to translate the opportunities into useful applications. Together with EU countries and Copernicus participating countries, the Commission aims to tap into this potential with an awareness and user uptake programme to realise the related economic and societal benefits.
