Unlock the power of Copernicus’ data for a secure, sustainable raw materials industry

Copernicus for Raw Materials is currently the only, online course in Europe providing training in how to apply the Copernicus satellite’s earth observation data to the raw materials sector.

You will have the unique opportunity to apply the Copernicus open data to real problems in mineral exploration and mining operations including safety, environmental compliance, and more. Experts in Earth Observation will train you in how to apply this data for the improvement of critical raw materials issues such as:

  • Securing the primary and secondary mineral and material resources needed to transition to a sustainable and circular economy.
  • Monitoring environmental impact and increasing safety.

This all contributes to a more sustainable supply of mineral resources.

Apply by the deadline of 24 November 2022 (23:59 CET).
