Infosession France

The Copernicus Training and Information Session will be held on 23-24 November 2017 in Paris. This is the 12th Copernicus Training and Information Session in a series of national Copernicus events. The European Commission is organising these sessions at the request of, and in collaboration with Member States.

The event aims to promote awareness of the many uses of Copernicus data and information, while providing the opportunity for hands on demonstrations and basic training regarding:

  • Access to Copernicus satellite data
  • Copernicus Land Monitoring Service (CLMS)
  • Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) and support to the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD)

The Copernicus Training and Information Session targets both Copernicus “intermediate” users (technical) and end user communities (non-technical).
For more information, please refer to the Agenda. Please note that all presentations will be given in French.

These events are open and free to registered participants.

The Copernicus Training and Information Session will be followed by a workshop dedicated to coastal applications (see agenda below)

The registration closed on 17th November 2017.
