Strengthening the research and development and innovation capacity for the evolution of Copernicus
25 July 2019
European Union and Member States' investment into the development and operation of Copernicus provides the necessary data resources for the realization of innovative solutions to crucial societal challenges.
Inventions, permanently stemming from research, need to be validated as robust and relevant through their adoption by diverse user communities - ultimately leading to sustainable innovations in the Copernicus mid- and downstream market.
This process is strongly supported by the Copernicus Academy network, which serves as a bridge between research and markets, hence maximizing the impact of the Copernicus programme at large.
