Estimated Article Reading Time: 0 min.

EARSC’s most recent position paper regarding the Copernicus Service Procurement.

As a stakeholder and someone with an interest in the success of the Copernicus programme, I am pleased to send you EARSC’s new position paper on Procurement of the Copernicus Services. This sets out our views on how to develop economic benefit within the downstream sector which is one of the objectives defined within the Copernicus regulation published earlier this year.

In the paper, we identify a number of issues of concern and provide some recommendations on steps to take to overcome them. We hope that you find the paper interesting and stimulating for ideas. We shall welcome any discussion on the paper. Please do give us your views on the topics addressed.

Geoff Sawyer,
EARSC Secretary General
