Water products which are fit for purpose

Water-ForCE recognises that it is essential to undertake the next phase of research and innovation in Earth Observation in partnership with industry and policy sectors, to design products which can effectively address our immediate environmental and climate challenges.

Have your say in the design of the next phase of the Copernicus Inland Water Services
We would like to welcome both non-users of Earth Observation and users of in-situ and remote sensing data to share their experience in inland water management, and ideas on how future Copernicus Inland Water services could best promote environmental protection, human welfare, policy development, innovation and business opportunities.
