The goal of this work is to demonstrate the value which is generated using satellite-based Earth Observations and particularly the data coming from the Copernicus Sentinel satellites. It should show a causal relationship between the Copernicus programme and benefits arising such as increased productivity, economic gain or social benefits such as improved quality of life. The evaluated and demonstrated benefits can be used:
- By policy makers to justify the investments which have been made into the Copernicus programme,
- By space agencies to demonstrate that the technology for which they have public responsibility is capable of delivering strong, beneficial results,
- By other public agencies which are using EO data and services to meet their operational requirements e.g. EEA, EMSA etc.,
- By EARSC to promote the capabilities of the industry and the strong benefits which can result,
- By companies to promote their capabilities and the power of their products and services.
Hence the results will be a powerful tool for all those working in the sector to justify past and future investments.
More than 20 case reports will be generated during the study which will also generate further analyses showing impacts of Copernicus Sentinels.
