Information

he Belgian Earth Observation Day (BEODAY) is an annual event where the results of research in the domain of Earth observation, mainly carried out within the framework of the STEREO (Support to Exploitation and Research in Earth Observation) programme, are presented and where the Belgian remote sensing community has ample opportunity to network.

STEREO III started in 2014 and will run until 2021. The programme is built around 3 axes: scientific research, research support and research dissemination. Thematically it focuses on studies of the terrestrial and marine ecosystems. Up to now, there have been 3 calls for scientific research and an ongoing open call for the development of applications. The results of the projects that started in 2014-2015 will be presented during the workshop.
