The Agriculture sector can vastly benefit from Copernicus full free and open data and information. The Copernicus programme already interacts with different stakeholders from the agricultural sector and the Copernicus Land Monitoring Service has a number of information products which can be relevant for the Agriculture domain. However, the full potential of the Copernicus programme in support of agriculture can be further developed and exploited.
The aim of the workshop is to address the possible role of the private (downstream) sector for possible solutions, integrating Copernicus data and Copernicus services´ information, in support of the agricultural end-users at the different levels: international, European and Member States' level.
The event is open and free to registered participants.
Registration is now closed due to the number of registered participants exceeding the venue's capacity.
