User Workshop - Copernicus Security - SEA and other applications relevant to EEAS
Date: 05th April 2017
Place: Brey Auditorium. Avenue d'Auderghem 45 (DG-GROW), Brussels
Before the start of operations of the new Copernicus service in Support to EU External Action (SEA) early May 2017, this workshop raised the awareness of the EEAS and Commission users dealing with EU External Action on the scope of the new Copernicus service and its added value for decision-making in crisis management.
Copernicus is the EU Programme providing services based on Earth Observation (space) and non-space data for monitoring Land, Marine, Atmosphere and Climate Change, and contributing also to Emergency Management and Security Applications.
The workshop also gave an overview of the Copernicus programme and the services relevant to EU External Action, such as Maritime Surveillance, Border Surveillance and the Emergency Management service (EMS).
To conclude, an interactive session aimed at clarifying remaining questions on both SEA and EMS operations and their relevance for users' activities.
