Unveiling the Opportunities of EO Data Exploitation: EO4EU Use Cases
Description and Scope
The rapid growth of Earth Observation (EO) data, has generated a wide range of practical applications covering land, maritime, climate change and atmospheric monitoring. Not only this allows to better understand the environmental change, but it also enables a more accurate prediction of natural phenomena.
Nevertheless, a large share of EO data still remains unexploited, thereby slowing down the scientific progress. EO4EU aims at supporting the wider exploitation of EO data by delivering innovative tools and a holistic data processing ecosystem that will enable experts and general users to capitalize on EO data.
In this dedicated webinar, EO4EU will unveil the potential of EO data for the wider industry, as well as for specific sectors by showcasing its different use cases. The webinar will be structured in a Q&A format to demonstrate the extensive applicability of EO data across fields and the benefits of open and accessible knowledge.
Who should attend and why?
Anyone who is interested in Earth or environmental data and easily accessing them should attend, but most especially:
- Research and academia representatives who are interested in discovering the potential outcomes of integrating EO data into their research projects;
- Policy makers at the European, national and even local levels that seek easy-to-use tools to support decision-making with satellite, urban, or environmental EO data;
- The private sector and their representatives who aim at optimizing their business by using EO data or aspire to develop new solutions based on it
- Earth and environmental data providers that want to see how to promote further use of their data and find opportunities for new value-added tools and services
- Citizen scientists and general public that would like to have better access to scientific EO and environmental data for their own research
- Experts active in standards development organisations that are interested in potential new standards recommendations that can come from the intersection of several technological areas under EO4EU such as Earth observation data with artificial intelligence, high performance computing, augmented reality, among others.
