Our Action

Why Women in Copernicus?
This is our mission

Women are part of the Copernicus experience. They are sometimes hidden but they are present in the production flow of the Earth Observation / Geoinformation / Copernicus (EO/GI/Copernicus) domains. The professions related to Copernicus, Earth Observation and Geo-graphics are very varied: physicist, geographer, computer scientist, environmentalist, geomatician, oceanographer, researcher, civil servant, consultant, urban planner, entrepreneur, etc. Women still occupy few of these positions with a strong technical component.

The "Women in Copernicus" project want to give a voice and a face to the women who work with Copernicus, be them experts in the analysis of satellite data or users of Copernicus services in various fields of application. It aims to identify opportunities and obstacles in the paths of these women, and also to inspire girls and women by bringing Women in Copernicus to the forefront of Copernicus.

Are you Woman working in Copernicus?

The "Women in Copernicus" project shed some light into the gender subject from the point of view of women active in Copernicus. Far from being representative of the whole ecosystem, the replies received from 460 women who participated in the survey launched in 2020 provide a first insight into a subject that should deserve further consideration in the future.
