The event aims to promote awareness of the many uses of Copernicus data and information, while providing the opportunity for hands on demonstrations and basic training regarding:

  • The tools available to access the data and information.

The Copernicus Training and Information Session targets both Copernicus “intermediate” end users (technical) and end user communities (non-technical).

These events are open and free to registered participants. Please go to “Register now” to sign up.

Registration will close on 31 October 2017.
