Copernicus – Objectives
Protect people and
assets
Increase general knowledge on
the state of the Planet
Monitor the
environment
Improve environmental policy
effectiveness
Facilitate
adaptation to
climate change
Foster downstream applications in
a number of fields
Help managing emergency and
security related situations
Copernicus History
Baveno Manifesto
(first reference to
Global Monitoring for
Environmental
Security)
1998
2001
• GMES flagship of EU
Space Policy
• ESA approves GMES
Space Component
Programme
2005
Gothenburg EU Summit
(first EC involvement in
establishing European
capacity for monitoring
the environment from
space)
EC proposed
• Copernicus Regulation
• Delegated act on
Copernicus Data Policy
• EC-ESA agreement
on GMES signed
• GMES services
presented at Lille
Forum
2006
EC dedicated unit
(GMES Bureau) in
charge of Programme
development and
implementation
2008
2011
Start of GMES Initial
Operations (GIO)
phase
2013
2014
onwards
Start of Copernicus
full operations phase
• Launch of sentinel
satellites begins
• Establish six services
GMES renamed
"Copernicus"
Copernicus Strategy
• A source of information for policymakers, scientists,
business and the public at large
• A European response to global needs
—to manage the environment,
—to mitigate the effects of climate change and
—to ensure civil security
• A user-driven programme of services
• An integrated Earth Observation system (combining
space-based and in-situ data with Earth System Models,
delivered to users by 6 service providers)
Copernicus Space Infrastructure
Sentinels
Five EO missions developed specifically for
Copernicus
Sentinel 1
Sentinel-2
PLUS
Contributing Missions
Sentinel-3
Third party EO missions offering their data to
Copernicus (EU/ESA MSs, EUMETSAT,
commercial, international)
Sentinel-4
Sentinel-5
AND
High Precision Ocean
Altimetry (HPOA)
mission Sentinel-6 = JasonCS
Six Copernicus services
Services monitoring Earth systems
Land Monitoring
Marine Monitoring
Atmosphere Monitoring
Horizontal services
Emergency Management
Security
 Output: Value-Added Information

Transfer to operations
As from 2014 :
ESA – Space Segment
(ESA + EU budget)
EU Operational budget
(~3.7b€ 2014-20)
From 2000 to 2013:
ESA – Space Segment
(ESA + EU budget)
EU – Development of Applications
EU contribution through R&D Budget FP7
Delegation Agreements, Tenders, Service
specifications
R&D
R & D & Innovation
Horizon 2020 RD&I support for
Copernicus:
- Continuity in transfer (particularly in 2014)
- Downstream applications & uptake
- Service evolution R&D based on op.
service feedback (especially post 2015)

Adoption of Copernicus Regulation

Implementation of services
• In some cases, the implementation of the services may be
(partly or in full) entrusted to competent EU bodies.
— EEA, FRONTEX, EMSA, EUSC
• For other cases, potential entities(1) are to be identified for
implementation, e.g. following a call for interest
— Selection criteria
— Operational and financial capacity
• To operate services, these service coordinating entities
draw on other capable actors across Europe
— e.g. via procurement from Industry value-adding companies,
SMEs and possibly involving European research institutes
•
(1) EU Financial Regulation Article 58.1(c); "entrusted entities" for budget implementation tasks
More about Copernicus services
• Please come to the Copernicus side event:
• Copernicus Today and Tomorrow
• Thursday 16, 14:30 to 16:30
• Room 18 ( Level -1)
• All Copernicus Services will be described in detail
• Space Infrastructure
• Copernicus data policy
Copernicus Regulation
• EP and Council are currently discussing the
Commission proposal for a Copernicus Regulation
— it should enter into force mid-2014
• Regulation describes the objectives of the
programme, the governance and budget for 20142020.
• Copernicus budget is EUR 3,786 million (2011
prices), pending approval of the EU 2014-2020 multiannual financial framework
Copernicus Data Policy
• The Copernicus data policy is adopted via a Delegated
Regulation
• This policy promotes the access, use and sharing of
Copernicus information and data on a full, free and open
basis
• One of the main objectives is to support downstream
segment and research, technology and innovation
communities
• The European research institutes will be able to make the
best use of these data to create innovative applications
and services
