Online event

Eurisy and CNES collaborated to bring to you hands-on examples of what can be achieved by using data and services from the Copernicus satellite constellations.

Don’t miss the opportunity to preview the videos realised within the “Copernicus and me” initiative by registering to the Launch Event!

We invite you to find out about six down-to-earth experiences of use of Copernicus data by local and public administrations and private companies.

You will be able to watch the videos and make questions to the organisations using the Copernicus data operationally.
