Get to know Copernicus at the Researchers’ Night in Athens!

Once again this year, on Friday the 29th of September, we’re renewing our appointment with European Researchers’ Night, the annual mega event which celebrates science and research and takes place simultaneously in several hundred cities across Europe and beyond.

This year however, LACAE as one of the founding members of Copernicus Academy network and the CAN-HelP consortium, it will introduce to the public the Copernicus programme.

Copernicus is a European Union Programme aimed at developing European information services based on satellite Earth Observation and in situ (non-space) data, in order to help service providers, public authorities and other international organisations improve the quality of life for the citizens.

Visitors will have the opportunity to learn about the Sentinels satellites and what they have to offer but also learn how the Copernicus program has helped the Greek authorities with its services and data, in the recent devastating fires of Attica, Kythira and Zakynthos, as well as the lethal earthquake of Chios.

Don’t miss the opportunity to meet Europe’s eyes on earth!
