Short description

2-days workshop with a plenary part, master class and training aimed to demonstrate to Ukrainian stakeholders state-of-the-art concrete use-cases and technologies based on Copernicus data developed by Space Research Institute and European partners (Copernicus Relay).

Main outputs:

Educational materials for the decision makers and trained stakeholders on the Copernicus data usage for the CAP support in Ukraine.


What motivated you to participate as an associated partner to CoRdiNet?

Space Research Institute as Copernus Academy site have mission to extend European EO technologies and Copernicus data usage in Ukraine on the governmental level through the educational activities. Partnership with the CoRdiNet will bring us possibility more effectively involve Ukrainian stakeholders into the EO technologies implementation.

How does your proposed action/project complement the purpose of CoRdiNet? What is your contribution to the Copernicus ecosystem?

The training workshop for Ukrainian stakeholders with involvement of European and national specialists within the CoRdiNet and Copernicus Academy site allowed us effectively present European technologies and Copernicus data used for the CAP support as well as Ukrainian developments that can be used for this purpose. As the result, this activity strengthened relationships between European and Ukrainian stakeholders and allows them more effectively organize policy making processes in Ukraine and bring Ukraine closer to Europe in the field of EO use on the country level. Increase of state-of-the-art technologies users in Ukraine that acts as representors of ministries and commercial organizations accelerates the processes of Copernicus service implementation in Ukraine and strengthens Ukraine's participation in the European segment of GEO.  In addition, the training materials created during this activity will act as the contribution of Ukraine in the Copernicus Academy and could be used by other neighboring countries.
