Welcome to the Copernicus Academy website

The main goal of this action is to establish a Copernicus Academy office – a contact point for existing and potential end-users of Copernicus data and services in the Czech Republic with synergy of the activities of the National secretariat GEO/Copernicus and Copernicus Academy/Copernicus Relays. The main role of this office is to foster collaboration between educational, public and private institutions and commercial operators or entrepreneurs. The office provides information about benefits of Copernicus data to potential end-users in different sectors and to coordinate and providing the experiences of different group of experts: from science and research sector, business and public bodies. The office internationally cooperates with other Copernicus Academies and with European Union Agency for the Space Programme in Prague (EUSPA). The best practices/success stories are implemented into education and through face to face meetings and consultations are identified the gaps where would be possible and useful to be implemented Copernicus products and services.

The office is located in the Hybernska Campus of Charles University in the centre of Prague, so it is open for communities to be provided a promotion, face to face consultations and trans-generation and trans-sectors consultations and workshops on Copernicus data and ideas.
