Ana Kuveždić Divjak, Željko Bačić


The Copernicus is a European Programme designed to establish a European capacity for the Earth Observation. It consists of a series of complex systems that collect data from multiple sources: satellites for Earth observation and sensors placed on the ground, in the air and in the sea. The goal of the program is to ensure regular monitoring and supervision of the atmosphere, ocean and land surface.

The celebration titled "Copernicus Goes Local – Implementing the Space Strategy for Europe" was held in the European Parliament and gathered around 300 participants. The event was attended by numerous Commissioners of the European Commission, participants of the European Earth Observation Programme, and industry representatives from all over Europe. The main motive of this event was the establishment of Copernicus at the local level.
