As an integral part of the stakeholder consultation process in preparation of the publication of the European Space Strategy, the European Commission has initiated an action to ensure the fully-fledged development of the Copernicus Value Chain. The ultimate objective is of the workshop is to obtain a clearer view of the Copernicus ecosystem as well as to properly identify the barriers to entry and key enablers for market uptake so as to allow the Copernicus program to produce all the expected benefits.
The workshop aims at identifying specific needs and expectations from the widest possible range of stakeholders and communities to foster the full development of the Copernicus Value Chain. It will gather a mix of representatives from the Copernicus ecosystem, actors from the information technology industry and big data domain, as well as existing and potential end-users of Copernicus data and information from a variety of industrial sectors. Two themes will be particularly addressed: data dissemination platforms for Copernicus and market uptake of Copernicus, including support to companies in the EO downstream sector.
