Published 18.01.2021 - Updated 18.01.2021

Based on local Copernicus info events and workshops to foster the creation of pilot projects, first, sector-independent policy recommendations are presented. They comprise three areas: Easy data accessibility and usage, increase awareness and use and support for innovations. To set the context, some of the EU regulative framework linked to the Copernicus services on land, water and air / climate was put together and discussed.

The report presents the methodologies used to identify and formulate recommendations for a wider use of Earth Observation – Copernicus data and services in the context of EU policies. More specifically, the report provides insights into the European directives and reporting obligations, and which EU regulatory frames already encourage improving monitoring and reporting.

The Policy Briefings have been updated by feedback received and policy recommendations extracted from targeted events and interviews with (potential) Copernicus users organized by CoRdiNet partners. The objective of the report is framed within the goal of CoRdiNet to offer support in the preparation of pilot projects to create business links between users and suppliers of Copernicus-related innovative services.
