EARSC Position Paper

European industry and stakeholders must organise to overcome a fragmented industry sector and create an alternative to US IT giants.

A European Marketplace for EO Services will enable companies to offer new products and services building upon those coming from Copernicus and other sources. It will allow the European industry to capitalise on the public investments in Copernicus and, by linking with other data sets, can unleash a new wave of innovative geospatial products addressing many markets.

The position paper sets out the roles of the different actors and next steps in order to achieve this European marketplace.
