RawMatCop Academy 2019: Copernicus for raw materials, discover the potential!

17 - 20 June 2019

Organisation: RawMatCop (a cooperation between EIT RawMaterials and Copernicus)

Location: Bologna, Italy


Raw materials are essential for human development and to fuel a future based on a decarbonized and circular economy. Yet, several key challenges in the supply of mineral resources are their availability and the social and environmental impacts of their exploration, extraction, processing, use and end-of-life. Earth Observation (EO) data and services from Copernicus provides a multi-scale coverage of the Earth's surface and can support smarter exploration, more efficient and cost-effective primary production and boost environmental impact monitoring across the raw materials life cycle.

The RawMatCop Academy 2019 offers a hands-on approach and will show you how to unlock the power of Copernicus for your company, organisation or research along the entire life cycle of raw materials. During the RawMatCop Academy 2019 you will have the opportunity to work directly with Copernicus' Sentinel satellite data and open source software to demonstrate how it can be used for:

  • Securing primary and secondary mineral and material resources needed to transition to a sustainable and circular economy
  • Monitoring environmental impact and increasing safety
