CopHub.AC – Copernicus Academy Hub for Knowledge, Innovation and Outreach

Committed to a full thematic and geographic coverage for uptake of space technology and geospatial information

Image

Project summary

A key to success in the market uptake of new space technology and geospatial information is the knowledge exchange among all actors from the various sectors involved, notably research and educational institutions, industry, and the public sector. As a successful instrument to foster and stimulate this exchange, maximize the impact and, additionally, boost relevant capacity building and training activities, the Copernicus Academy has been anchored in the European Space Strategy.

To consolidate the Copernicus Academy network and develop further the idea of physical regional and virtual Copernicus hubs, the CopHub.AC project has been implemented over 24 months. The project’s proposed technical elements served to demonstrate innovative solutions to visualize and facilitate easy harvesting of the Copernicus Academy members´ expertise by different stakeholders and the public, and to showcase possibilities of active involvement and exchanges within the network.

Our role

We have been responsible for the coordination of the six Thematic Working Groups, one of the innovative elements developed during the project, to focus exchanges among Copernicus Academy members around the six Copernicus core themes. 

Furthermore, we participated in several outreach activities at local, national and European level, and supported the development of the innovation pipeline with a dedicated user uptake activity on emission reporting related to the land use, land use change and forestry sector with the Spanish Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Hidraulic Institute of Cantabria in Spain.
