Copernicus “Eyes on Earth” Roadshows attract emerging Earth Observation professionals in Rotterdam and Tallinn

The second and third Copernicus "Eyes on Earth" Roadshows attracted a large number of students and young professionals. During the Roadshows participants took part in interactive sessions and meetings with geospatial experts, thus perceiving endless possibilities of Earth Observation.


The Copernicus ‘Eyes on Earth’ Roadshow has captured the attention of young emerging Europeans, seasoned experts, ambitious start-up entrepreneurs and established companies since its first event in Darmstadt. After the successful start in June in Germany, Roadshow travelled to Rotterdam and Tallinn where it attracted even larger number of students and young professionals who were eager to learn about the EU’s Copernicus programme and how to apply space data to business, other industries and day-to-day tasks. Some had no previous knowledge of space data, others were already well-versed in it.
