EEA renews deal with Copernicus

The European Environment Agency has renewed its cooperation agreement with Copernicus, the European Earth observation programme, for the next 7 years.

The agreement, signed on 1 December between the EEA and the European Commission, is worth €87 million for the period 2014-2020.

Under the deal, the EEA will coordinate the implementation of the Copernicus Land Monitoring Services. This means that the agency will develop applications based on data from Copernicus for use in areas such as environment, agriculture, regional planning, transport, energy and climate change. Some of these services will be image mosaics and detailed land maps, the Commission said in a statement.
