The International Auditorium
Boulevard du Roi Albert II, No. 5 / 2
This workshop aims to bring the EO service providers closer to the research community, capture their needs and develop fit for purpose EO services.
The event will be the 4th OCRE Requirements Gathering Workshop. Researchers and Earth Observation Service Providers will be asked to provide inputs to help us shape OCRE's tender.
The OCRE project aims to provide the first end-to-end instance of organised, large-scale market pull for EO services in Europe. These services will be provided for free to EU researchers through the European Open Science Cloud. To ensure that the services meet the actual needs of the research community we invite both the demand and the supply side, to share their views and engage in a productive dialogue. Our aim is to capture the needs of EU researchers and inform the EO service providers so that they make available services that effectively address them. We will also explain how the OCRE process will work, how the different stakeholders should be involved and how to make the most of the foreseen benefits.
Researchers: Join the workshop to help us shape the EO services for your research. To educate the suppliers on what your needs are.
EO service providers: Join us to get a first-hand account of researchers’ needs and share your views on readily available services that can effectively meet them.
