RawMatCop Academy Copernicus for Raw Materials

18th May 2021 @ 8:00 am - 28th May 2021 @ 5:00 pm


This is a course endorsed by EFG.

The RawMatCop Academy, Copernicus for RawMaterials, offers a hands-on approach and shows how to unlock the power of Copernicus for companies, organisations and research institutions along the entire life cycle of raw materials. During the course, participants have the opportunity to work directly with Copernicus’ Sentinel satellite data and open-source software to learn how it can be used for:

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

Course topics:

  • Introduction to Copernicus and Earth Observation data
  • Basics of imaging technology, optical and active remote sensing in raw materials
  • Optimised ways to monitor environmental impact and increase safety
  • Copernicus’ tools to tackle the industrial and societal challenges of raw materials in Europe
