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
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.Check the results!
This section wants to give face and voice to all the participants to this WIC project.
