Earth Observation & Copernicus Technologies and Solutions for User Applications - This free event is planned as a marketplace that will enable knowledge transfer between technology experts, service providers and manufacturers as well as users from selected application fields. The goal is to stimulate the development and marketing of new "Copernicus"related products, services and solutions. The event will build on findings and experience from the German technology network "CopServ" and aims to transfer valuable technological know-how to European level in the framework of the EEN.
The event will offer thematic workshops to exchange ideas on technology trends, identify market demand and raise awareness among end users towards the importance of Earth observation and Copernicus technologies and their potential. A B2Match event for bilateral meetings is included.
