EARSC at Copernicus Value Chain Workshop
Interviews from the workshop ©EC
The main focus of the Copernicus Value Chain Workshop was to develop a clearer view of the Copernicus ecosystem so as to properly identify the barriers to entry and key enablers for market uptake. The meeting gathered a mix of representatives from the Copernicus ecosystem, actors from the ICT industry and potential end users.
IT and EO players discussed the improvement of the Copernicus data access and EU institutions acknowledge the role of the private sector in this respect. The market uptake will not happen without private sector involvement and the need for complementarity and clear boundaries between public and industrial initiatives has been reasserted.
