Copernicus SEA Workshop - The Copernicus Security Service for Member States and the European Union
The Copernicus Service in Support to EU External Action (SEA), in collaboration with the Centre national d’études spatiales (CNES), is holding a one day workshop for existing and potential users of SEA on Wednesday 11 December 2018 in Paris, at the CNES headquarter.
Copernicus is an EU funded Earth observation programme designed to provide data and information freely and openly through six services to tackle environmental challenges and stimulate innovation and economic growth. The European Union Satellite Centre, as Copernicus Entrusted Entity, coordinates this service, which assists the EU in its operations and interests outside EU territory, providing decision makers with geo-information on remote, difficult to access areas, where security issues are at stake. It also assists third countries in situations of crisis or emerging crisis and to prevent global and trans-regional threats having a destabilising effect. The Copernicus Service in Support to EU External Action (SEA) provides continuous data and information on atmospheric composition.
