Supporting EO exploitation in Africa

‪ESA partnered with the African Union Commission, JRC and EUMETSAT ‬to train experts from 25 African countries in cloud computing for EO applications in order to exploit the full power of Copernicus Sentinel-1&2 observations for monitoring Africa.

‬The training, hosted by the CRASTE center in Rabat, Morocco mid October 2019, is part of the GMES and Africa Programme Training Strategy.

‬ESA is proposing a new R&D initiative EOAFRICA to their member states at the Space19+ ministerial to develop innovative EO applications together with African partners. ‬
