More than 80 participants had the opportunity to delve into the EIFFEL project at the info-day on the European Union's Earth Observation Programme "Copernicus".
The info-day, organized by the BEYOND Centre of Excellence of the National Observatory of Athens and Praxi Network on the 30th of November 2021, aimed to raise awareness in the Region of Northern Greece and inform the relevant players about the Copernicus EU Programme, as well as, to reach all the potential Greek recipients (intermediate or end users) of Copernicus and particularly to demonstrate the emerging opportunities from using Copernicus to new groups of people, previously not aware of it but potentially very interested.
Our partner from DRAXIS Spyros Tsalageorgos, successfully showcased the EIFFEL project and particularly the horizontal tools on GEOSS and the Pilot applications, to attendees from private companies, innovative SMEs, research institutions and research members from academia.
The event was published in the local e-newspaper of Northern Greece "TyposThes" with a special mention to the EIFFEL project.

"Copernicus" is the European Union's Earth observation programme, looking at our planet and its environment to benefit all European citizens. It offers information services that draw from satellite Earth Observation and in-situ (non-space) data. European citizens, ranging from policy makers, researchers, commercial to private users, as well as the global scientific community can benefit in many ways from the data and information provided by Copernicus. Indeed, Copernicus supports a variety of applications in several non-space domains, which potentially impact businesses and organisations in day-to-day activities and operations.
