Minimize Open Opportunities for Researchers

EarthCARE

The EarthCARE AO aims to engage leading expertise for the Calibration and Validation activities for the mission, providing independent experimental data, analysis and recommendations to critically assess the end-to-end performance of the instruments and their products.

EOhopS

The EOhopS call, part of the ESA TPM programme, opens an EO data hosted-processing offer to scientists and R&D users.

OSEO

The Open Science Earth Observation (OSEO) call offers to scientists the opportunity to exploit at no cost a full archive of optical EO data for science, applications and technological innovation, by offering services which exploit state of the art ICT.

S3VT

The S3VT call is open to relevant and interested groups and individuals worldwide; group responses are particularly welcome.

Swarm

Interested users may - at any time - submit proposals for the use of Swarm validated Level 1b and Level 2 data through a dedicated interface.

G-POD

First Sentinel-2B images delivered by laser

 12 June 2017

With the Sentinel-2B satellite close to beginning its working life in orbit, this latest Copernicus satellite has linked up to Alphasat by laser, across almost 36 000 km of space, to deliver images of Earth just moments after they were captured.
