The Space sector in Europe has been boosted by the Copernicus programme, bringing significant socio-economic and environmental benefits to public sector, businesses and citizens. For the maximisation of the impact of Copernicus sustainable user uptake activities are required. Within these activities Copernicus Academy and Copernicus Relays play a significant role. Having been the “creator” of the Academy and leaders in the implementation we are highly motivated to ensure the effective coordination of this network of academies/relays and deliver value to the targeted communities. Our vision is to establish a long-term Copernicus hub to consolidate and sustain the Copernicus Academy as a knowledge and innovation platform.
