A high precision model of the Earth

 A high precision model of the Earth

The European Commission launched the ‘Destination Earth’ initiative. It will bring together European scientific and industrial excellence to develop a high precision digital model of the Earth. This ground-breaking initiative will offer a digital modelling platform to visualise, monitor and forecast natural and human activity on the planet, in support of sustainable development. This will consequently support Europe’s efforts for a better environment as set out in the Green Deal. The digital twin of the Earth will be constructed progressively, starting in 2021.

Targeted Impacts:

  • Societal awareness and greater private and citizen engagement promoting co- creation of solutions with Member States
  • Increased purposeful observation and modelling capacity and data sharing
  • Higher integration of existing EU assets (data, techs, infras)
  • Fact-based decision-making and implementation of legal requirements,
  • Shared responsibility (gov, industry, citizens) to monitor and ensure sustainable marine economic activities and exploitation of ecosystem services (fishing, aquaculture, transport, offshore energy, …)
  • Allow assessments of ecosystems and habitats and development of biodiversity conservation strategies
  • Achievements of Green Deal objectives with the help of digital tools in coastal areas and over ocean
