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.
With strong technical component are filled by women
We aim to identify opportunities and obstacles
And encourage girls / women to study and apply for these positions
This survey addresses European Women working (or having worked) with Copernicus
data or in the
Copernicus world (please just answer in that case). There are 6 sections (demographics,
background, barriers, facilitators, education choices and final). This should take 15 minutes to
