On 13 June 2013 High Representative Catherine Ashton visited the European Union Satellite Centre (SatCen) – an EU Agency based in Torrejón de Ardoz near Madrid. One of the briefings focused on Copernicus products released in support to EU External Action with the involvement of the EU SatCen.
The Satellite Centre is one of the key players in this field due to the agency’s commitment to and active role in many previous and ongoing Copernicus projects (i.e. G-MOSAIC, G-NEXT, G-SEXTANT, BRIDGES).
