In Estonia the national Land Board is establishing Copernicus data Hub ESTHub https://www.maaamet.ee/en/objectives-activities/geoinformatics/national-mirror-site-esthub. This process has started in 2016 under supervision of Remote Sensing Committee that links representatives from Research, Higher education, Ministerial and enterprises. It is expected that the ESTHub is ready for functioning in November 2018. With ESTHub we want to build active user dialogue and promote national innovation actions.

With two ESTHub information days (one in English and Estonian the other in Estonian) it is planned to (1) introduce national capacities for the neighboring countries (Latvia, Finland) initiating joint actions and (2) educate and inform national public and business users about Copernicus data available over Estonia as well as possibilities of ESTHub for data access and processing. Information days are foreseen taking place in one in Tallinn and one in Tartu, where also ESA Business Incubators have been opened. Information days consist of the basic concept of ESThub, processors that can be used and data available. For the future actions planes it is crucial mapping also user needs, requirements as these will change very fast according to the available knowledge and technology.

Information days will be carried out in collaboration of Tartu Observatory/Tartu University with by Estonian Land Board.
