New Commission Knowledge Centre on Earth Observation to further strengthen evidence-based policymaking
The European Commission (EC) has launched a Knowledge Centre on Earth Observation, to maximise the use of knowledge, generated from Earth Observation, in particular from the European Copernicus Programme, in EU policymaking. The goal of the Centre is to support the efficient implementation of the Commission’s political priorities, in particular, the European Green Deal and the Digital Agenda.
It provides systematic monitoring of the policy needs and priorities for Copernicus products and services and transforms best practices and state-of-the-art science into policy-tailored services.
The Knowledge Centre also aims to ensure that the evolution of the Copernicus programme and other Earth Observation and research investments of the Commission remain responsive to EU policy.
