in Copernicus is a European project which aims to identify and give
a voice to women involved in or using Copernicus and its data.
Women are part of the
Copernicus experience. They are not always visible but they are present in the
production flow of the Copernicus / Earth Observation / Geoinformation
(Copernicus/EO/GI) domains. The professions related to Copernicus/EO/GI domains
are very varied: physicist, geographer, computer scientist, environmentalist,
geomatician, oceanographer, urban planner ; as a researcher, a civil servant, a
consultant, an entrepreneur, etc. Women still occupy few of these positions
with a strong technical component.
The "Women in Copernicus" projects wants to give a voice and a face to the women who work with Copernicus, wether they are experts in the analysis of satellite data or users of Copernicus services in various fields of application. The project aims to identify opportunities and obstacles in the paths of these women, and also to inspire girls and women by bringing Women in Copernicus to the forefront of Copernicus.
