Copernicus and Cultural Heritage workshop, Brussels, 24 April 2017

The “Copernicus and Cultural Heritage workshop” will take place in Brussels on 24 April in the Breydel Auditorium, DG GROW from 09:00 to 17:30.

The workshop intends to assess the potential of Copernicus in support of Cultural Heritage preservation and management, and to provide inputs for further research and/or operational implementation.

The objectives of the workshop are:

  • To identify intermediate and end-users’ needs in the Cultural Heritage domain, and assess and characterise space-based applications in support of Cultural Heritage at EU and global level
  • To assess capabilities and outline requirements for Copernicus-based products/services in support of Cultural Heritage
  • To propose and assess implementation scenarios for a structured Copernicus-based approach for Cultural Heritage support

The workshop will aim at identifying the main user requirements for space-based applications associated to the preservation and management of cultural heritage assets in Europe and Worldwide. Opportunities for standardisation shall be analysed taking into account what is already done in some European Countries, with risk assessments associated to each Cultural asset subject to environmental risks. The main focus will however be on the characterisation and mapping of Copernicus capabilities and existing solutions over the identified user needs, and the identification of potential evolutions to effectively support cultural heritage needs.
