Copernicus services news: Copernicus' monitoring services moving closer to operational phase
The European Commission moved a step closer to the start of the operational stage of three of Copernicus's Earth observation services: Atmosphere Monitoring, Climate Change, and Marine Environment Monitoring.
Implementation of these services was recently delegated to two expert organisations who will now manage the provision of the €435 million of EU funds available for this purpose to appropriate EU service providers, in order to obtain the additional components necessary to finalise the service provision in all three areas.
The CCI programme heard from representatives of the Atmosphere, Climate Change, Marine and Land services at the recent CCI Colocation meeting. Further information on the start of the operational stage of the services can be found on the EC website.
