In this 5-days intensive course, 30 selected students from ESA member states received dedicated training on the principles of remote sensing, ESA’s EO satellite missions and issues of data fusion, delivered by experts from academic institutions, industry, and ESA.

Dr Stefan Lang, Z_GIS, held a lecture and practical exercise in the integrative field of “spatial image analysis”. He also shared first-hand experience on future GI/EO related job, user-oriented EO-based services, and the ambition of Copernicus to be (much) more than a data generation system. The investment into our future human capacity in this boosting sector was considered a highly rewarding activity, stimulated by knowledge exchange and mutual discussions.

CopHub.AC - a Horizon 2020 project to support the Copernicus Academy
The Horizon 2020 project CopHub.AC – coordinated by Z_GIS - started in October 2018. The vision of CopHub.AC is to establish within the next two years a long-term Copernicus hub to consolidate and sustain the Copernicus Academy as a knowledge and innovation platform. 

With 13 European partners involved from academia and industry, including associations from the GI / EO sector, the project pursues specific activities on developing a knowledge landscape, new formats of research briefs, outreach and sustainability. It will focus and link ongoing R&D activities on Copernicus-relevant fields on a high scientific level to make the Copernicus Academy sustainable.

Together with the “sister project” CoRdiNet, similarly supporting the Copernicus Relays, the joint Kick-off meeting took place at Research Executive Agency (REA) and NEREUS Secretariat in Brussels on 11th and 12th of October with in total more than 30 participants from all over Europe discussing and planning project-specific and joint activities.

At the Copernicus-related multi-event at Brussel’s prestigious Docks Dome venue (9-11 October 2018), Z_GIS presented its broad range of Copernicus-related activities. 
Passing all relevant milestones during the week, the Copernicus Ecosystem workshop, the Copernicus Academy/Relays General Assembly, and the joint Kick-off meetings of two projects funded under the H2020 SPACE “Copernicus Hub” call, Z_GIS, represented by Dr Stefan Lang, used this unique opportunity to network with relevant peer actors and stakeholders and showcase our contributions to the Copernicus Academy via the CopHub.AC project. 
Peter Zeil from Spatial Services Ltd, one of the ‘fathers’ of the Academy, co-moderated a workshop on skills and training perspectives arising from new Copernicus businesses.
