    Copernicus online course: using Earth Observation data to address societal challenges


    Copernicus is the European Union's Earth Observation Programme. It provides a huge amount of information about Earth, that can be used to address societal and business challenges.

    Recently the Programme launched "Copernicus MOOC", a Massive Open Online Course, free and accessible to all. The course is mainly directed to professionals from the public sector and entrepreneurs, with an interest in using geo-information data to address societal challenges and develop new business opportunities. It has been developed by the University of Luxembourg Competence Centre and PwC for the European Commission. It will be delivered between March and May 2020.

    What will you learn?

    The course will address three key topics:

    1. Understand Copernicus data and services – what they are, and how they can be accessed and used.
    2. Learn from success stories – how existing Copernicus-enabled services and applications have been developed and deployed.
    3. Do it yourself – acquire the key skills and knowledge to develop and deploy Copernicus-enabled products and services and to navigate the Copernicus ecosystem.

     

    With 2 hours of time investment per week (24 hours in total), you will be able to understand the full value of Copernicus data and services and how to benefit from it.
