An EASME and DG GROW initiative, the Copernicus ‘Eyes on Earth’ Roadshow fosters the development of applications with space data and other geo-information systems; develop the technical and scientific skills needed to work in the space data sector; and encourage citizens’ interest in Earth observation activities.
This is done through a series of five highly interactive events in five different EU Member States from June 2019 to March 2020.
The first ‘Eyes on Earth’ Roadshow in Darmstadt demonstrated how the European Union’s Copernicus satellite programme helps us all better understand our planet; and creates jobs and business opportunities. The event, which included an expo area with interactive tools, business presentations, interactive masterclasses dedicated to real business cases (e.g. how to deal with heat islands in cities), and network/matchmaking sessions, provided a multitude of benefits to participants of all ages and all walks of life.
