EARSC statement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, and resulting impact on the Copernicus programme
The European Association of Remote Sensing Companies (EARSC) is the European organisation which promotes the use of Earth Observation (EO) technology and represents the interests of the geo-information services sector in Europe. We have 101 members from 23 countries covering the full EO services value chain including commercial operators of EO satellites, data resellers, value-adding companies, geospatial information suppliers, consultancies and system/software providers.
As such, EARSC is deeply concerned about the potential impact upon the Copernicus programme should the United Kingdom cease to be a full participant and contributor to the programme. This brief statement sets out our views on the subject and articulates our desired outcome, which is to see the UK continue to contribute and participate fully in the programme.
The EO4GEO project is inviting experts in the Earth Observation / Geographic Information sectors to participate in the process of developing a Body of Knowledge (BoK) for GI and EO. We are looking for professionals ready to support the description of the particular concepts (topics) in different inter-related knowledge areas, by commenting and contributing to the elaboration of the relevant texts.
This week we had the pleasure of interviewing Dutch MEP Caroline Nagtegaal, ALDE Shadow Rapporteur for EU Space Budget to take a closer look at the proposal. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms. Nagtegaal for her time and her work on this proposal.

Copernicus Sentinel data is being used by water utilities in the UK to improve the management of peatlands, leading to better water quality for local citizens, reduced costs of purification for the water
companies and strong environmental benefits.
On the 26th June 2018, Sinergise was presented with the EARSC Company Achievement Award during the Association’s Annual cocktail, held in Brussels.
The EARSC competition “European EO product of the year” rewarded a company which has developed a product which will support the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at national, regional and/or local levels, and the monitoring and reporting against the global indicator framework.
EARSC and Eurochile join forces to promote Earth observation products and services within the framework of the Copernicus programme
Brussels, 18 May 2018
The European Association of Remote Sensing Companies (EARSC) and the Eurochile Business Foundation, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), establishing a formal cooperation initiative between EARSC, responsible for promoting the use of Earth Observation (EO) technology and supporting companies in Europe which offer EO-related products and services, and Eurochile, responsible for promoting economic, trade, and technological cooperation between the private sector and institutions in Chile and the European Union, through business promotion, and the transfer of technology and know-how.
The EC has published its proposed budgets for the next Multi-Annual Financial Framework Perspective 2021 to 2028 which includes an allocation for “space” of €16b. This will provide continuity for the 2 EC flagships; Galileo and Copernicus.
The project, which is now in its first steps (Preparing the space/geospatial sectors skills strategy), intends to identify gaps and shortages between GI and EO training offer.
Tailoring Earth Observation services to Europe’s needs: Coordinate, combine and cooperate
This is the 4th case study carried out by EARSC and the first in a series in the frame of the study “Assessing the detailed benefits derived from Copernicus Earth Observation (EO) data within selected value chains”, under an assignment from the European Space Agency (ESA), funded through the EU Copernicus programme.
The Copernicus Marine Service is pleased to announce the launch of a new ocean information product, the Ocean Monitoring Indicators (OMIs). OMIs are free downloadable data sets covering the past 25 years of the key variables used to monitor the oceanic trends in line with climate change, including ocean warming, sea level rise and melting of sea ice. This free and open ocean information allows users to track the vital health signs of the ocean over the past quarter of a century.
