The G-NEXT and G-SEXTANT projects jointly published a special issue of Window on Copernicus - Discover the Security dimension of Copernicus - in the summer of 2015. This publication focusses on Copernicus products and information in Support to the EU’s External Actions.
The coordinators of G-NEXT and G-SEXTANT were invited by the European Commission to present the results and state of play of the two projects at the 2014 International Space Research Conference. The presentation was delivered during the Technical Session on 'Space-based applications – Earth Observation'. The event took place on the 15th to the 17th of September 2014 in Rome, Italy.
The aim of the conference is to raise awareness of the results of EU Space research initiatives among policy makers, scientists and journalists, and to strengthen international cooperation.
From the 9th to the 13th of September, with the fourth edition of the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Living Planet symposium being held, the capital city of Scotland, Edinburgh, became the centre of Earth Observation (EO) science.
As of the 15th of July 2013, the G-NEXT project started delivering services in pre-operational mode and is ready to accept requests from users.
The service provision includes both rush and non-rush modes and will last until December 2014.
