Currently looking for innovative ways to improve the user uptake of space data through new education and training actions. Together with our international partners in the Earth Observation Training, Education, and Capacity Building Network, EOTEC DevNetExternal link, we are committed to making Earth observation (EO) capacity building more accessible and relevant to users and increase the use of EO in decision-making by fostering collaboration among the leading global providers of EO training and tools.
