Nevertheless, there are other elements of the Horizon2020 instrument that might be relevant for Copernicus-related initiatives.
To encourage scientific endeavours, the European Commission Directorate General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG GROW) has put together a list of Horizon2020 calls that can be of interest to anyone working on Copernicus or Earth Observation in general.
Most of these calls have already been published and opened for proposals. They represent a significant opportunity for the Copernicus community. The deadline for the Space calls ends in March 2019.
