The Copernicus4Regions initiative explores how other regions in Europe have managed to tackle common challenges, shows the benefits of the Copernicus programme and therefore invites more regions to be involved in the Copernicus ecosystem.
Copernicus is the Earth observation component of the European Union’s Space programme, looking at our planet and its environment to benefit all European citizens. It offers information services that draw from satellite Earth Observation and in-situ (non-space) data. The European Commission manages the Programme. It is implemented in partnership with the Member States, the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), EU Agencies and Mercator Océan.
NEREUS (Network of European Regions Using Space Technologies) (https://www.nereus-regions.eu) is the only European association governed by regions for regions to promote the use of space for the benefit of the citizen at the local/regional and European levels. Its ultimate aim is to contribute to the betterment of societies.
