European Commission chairs the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites for the first time
05 November 2018
The European Commission's role as Chair of CEOS has offered a remarkable opportunity to further advance CEOS priorities. The European Commission worked with the past chair USGS, the 2018-2019 Chair of the Strategic Implementation Team, NOAA, and the relevant stakeholders to ensure substantive and timely continuity of CEOS activities.
Brussels as the home of both the Copernicus Programme and European Commission has brought together a great mix of expertise both in terms of policy and implementation, while gathering the CEOS membership to deepen awareness of and support for its Earth Observation missions, data, and activities, their global relevance and benefits.
