Spanish Workshop on the applications of Copernicus for the agriculture sector
The objective of this workshop is to foster the Copernicus user uptake within the Spanish agriculture sector and the use of Sentinels data and Copernicus Services to monitor the state of the environment and the agriculture in particular involving regional governments and the private sector. Taking into account the development of the Sentinels applications for crops monitoring within the next CAP reform, it is of the outmost importance to continue working identifying obstacles, gaps and potential improvement of the service within the agricultural sector as well as to identify the actions that the Spanish administration and the EU must implement to promote the knowledge and improve the use of Copernicus.
Technical sessions and round tables aimed at the promotion of the Copernicus program within the Spanish Agriculture Sector and the use of Sentinels data and Copernicus Services to monitor the state of the environment and the agriculture in particular involving regional governments and the private sector.
The target audience for this workshop will be national and regional administration, private sector, research centers, etc. The expected audience will be around 150 people according to the workshop that took place in May 2017 (agenda in the figure) and 200 following the workshop by streaming.
Direct and external implementation: The workshop will be organized by CDTI. There might be some participation from other Spanish Consortium participants.
The Spanish Ministry for the Ecological Transition (MITECO) will also contribute in the organization of the workshop and some regional governments might co-organize the workshop too. For example: the 2017 workshop was hosted and co-organized by the regional government of Andalucía.
