4th workshop | Scaling up the sentinels in Europe

26 - 27 October 2020 (Norwegian Space Agency, Oslo, Norway)

(available as e-seminar as well)

Objective of this workshop is to give a most actual and wide update about developments in relation to Sentinel satellites from Copernicus and ESA. Additionally, knowledge and experience from different national Collaborative Ground Segments (CGS) will be presented. Presentations of active projects and innovations will raise awareness of the possibilities and motivate ideas to make use of earth observation data making sure the scaling up phase in the programme has already started. The programme provides a mix of invited speakers and call for presentations, where users, operators and specialists in this domain can share their experiences. This interesting workshop is the latest in a series of four and is co-organized by representatives of EuroSDR, Norwegian Space Agency, KU Leuven, the Norwegian Mapping Authority and the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate.
