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.
