Copernicus is the Earth Observation Programme of the European Union, looking at our planet and its environment for the benefit of global citizens. Five Copernicus missions are currently in orbit. The data they provide enable six information services free and openly accessible, that can be used by private, public and international organisations to improve life on Earth.
This initiative is implemented by Eurisy and CNES with funding from the Caroline Herschel Framework Partnership Agreement between the European Commission and Copernicus Participating States. The initiative is overseen by CNES within the context of the initiative Connect-by-CNES.
