Specific Product Citation
If in the product sheet the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) is showed then it should be included in the product’s citations.
Satellites and space technologies provide our societies with crucial services; they have a direct impact on your everyday lives, and the space industry is a source of economic growth and jobs. The EU relies on space technology for implementing its policies – protecting the marine and land environment and biodiversity, combating climate change, responding to disasters, managing transport, etc.
To achieve this mission, the EU needed its own independent access to space-based services. The Lisbon Treaty, signed by the EU member states in December 2007, has given the EU a mandate to
draw up a space policy
set up space programmes
coordinate the work being done at the national level.
Two major space programmes are currently underway: GALILEO (satellite navigation system) and COPERNICUS.
They are driven by the EC Directorate Enterprise and Industry ( European Commission Vice-President and Commissioner: Antonio TAJANI).
COPERNICUS, previously known as GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security), is the European Programme for the establishment of a European capacity for Earth Observation and Monitoring.
COPERNICUS encompasses 3 components: SPACE, INSITU and SERVICES.
