The results of the joint NEREUS-ESA project “Improving Copernicus among Local and Regional Authorities” will be presented on Tuesday 28th of June 2016 at the European Parliament, during an event under the auspices of Patrizia Toia, Member of European Parliament and Vice-Chair of the ITRE Committee.
European local and regional authorities (LRAs) are responsible for territorial management and environmental policy implementation. Information gained by COPERNICUS Sentinel satellites can provide an effective support in this respect. However, this opportunity is not always fully known or readily exploited. Through this project, NEREUS and ESA joined forces in order to familiarize LRAs with Sentinel-based potential applications, discuss roadblocks and potential recommendations to overcome them.
