The European Commission invites you to the high-level conference "Copernicus Goes Local – Launch event of the Copernicus Relays and the Copernicus Academy" taking place at the European Parliament in Brussels, on 6 June 2017 starting at 13:30.
The event represents a significant milestone for the Copernicus Programme and for the European Union, and will be an occasion to exchange views on the Space Strategy for Europe.
Moreover, the conference will be the official inauguration of the Copernicus Relays and the Copernicus Academy, two networks recently put in place by the European Commission that are a ground-breaking tool for the local uptake of the Copernicus Programme across Europe, and that have aroused vast interest from entities in all EU countries – and beyond.
The conference foresees the participation of the President of the European Parliament, Mr Antonio Tajani (TBC), the Commissioner for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs, Mrs Elżbieta Bieńkowska, as well as the President of the Committee of the Regions, Mr Markku Markkula, and is hosted by MEP Mrs. Monika Hohlmeier, the chair of the EP’s Sky and Space intergroup.
