ERA-PLANET, “the European Network for Observing our Changing Planet” is a network of 36 partner organizations from 14 European countries and one associated country aiming at strengthening the European Research Area in the domain of Earth Observation in coherence with the European participation to Group on Earth Observations (GEO) and the Copernicus programme.
ERA-PLANET promotes the use of tools and technologies to make better decisions based on data from the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS).
The ERA-PLANET Call is based on a two-step selection process and aims to select and fund the best innovative and competitive projects in relation to four thematic areas:
Smart cities and Resilient societies,
Resource efficiency and Environmental management,
Global changes and Environmental treaties,
Polar areas and Natural resources.
