IES joins the Copernicus Academy Network

The Institute for Environmental Solutions (IES) has been approved as the only Latvian representative in the Copernicus Academy Network. Thus, bringing international Earth observation knowledge closer to the next generation of Latvian researchers, scientists and practitioners.


The Copernicus Academy will connect European universities, research institutions, business schools, both private and non-profit organisations, in the Participating Countries of the Copernicus Programme and beyond. It will also work to increase exchange of ideas and best practices across borders and disciplines while contributing to the development of the use of Earth Observation data in general and Copernicus data and information in particular, in various public or private user organisations or industries.

The members of the network will have access to comprehensive toolbox of User Upatake tools and will receive updated information form the European Commission and the recently established Copernicus Support Office.

As a part of the European Space Strategy, the Copernicus Academy has the ambition to develop new tools, to foster exchanges of knowledge as well as cross-border and cross-sectorial collaboration. That will contribute to unleashing the vast potential of Copernicus Sentinel data and service information to change our world for the better.
