At the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, 23-24 May, under the umbrella of DG ECHO, a promotion event for the Copernicus Emergency Management Service has been co-organised by Peter Zeil, formerly seconded to the Copernicus unit at DG GROW.

It was attended by Z_GIS representative Dr Stefan Lang, showcasing the successful service setup by Z_GIS for humanitarian operations. Participants from international NGOs, country representatives, EU and UN organisations, as well as civil protection agencies, joined the event and engaged in discussions on future EO-based humanitarian information services.
