The Copernicus MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) is an online training aimed at enabling anyone to understand how to use Earth Observation data in order to address societal challenges and generate business opportunities.
Participants will learn how Copernicus data can be used for evidence-based public policy, as well as to develop new products and services, open up new markets, improve quality of life, and make the most of limited resources in a sustainable way.
The Copernicus MOOC aims to make Copernicus and its ecosystem accessible to all. It is designed for all people who use or could benefit from using geo-information data, but who have no or limited prior experience in doing so. All first-time and intermediate users of Copernicus data and services from the public and private sector are therefore invited to participate: civil servants, policy makers, entrepreneurs, innovators, intrapreneurs, service designers, and others.
The course is funded by the EU and registration is free and open to all.
The Copernicus MOOC will be held twice in 2020:
Each MOOC will consist in 12 lessons of 2 hours each, over a period of 12 weeks.
