e-shape project through its 7 showcase interactive webinars communicates effectively the progress and successful results outside the EO community and beyond, by reaching a critical mass of users across boarders and sectors.

Climate change estimates for the coming months | practical pilot services, Part A

26.4.2022 | 10:00 - 12:00 am (CEST) | Online

The Webinar “Climate change estimates for the coming months – practical pilot services, Part A” provides useful information about climate change estimates such as seasonal climate predictions for urban and forest areas. The main purpose of this webinar (part A) is to present the pilots’ services regarding climate change estimates that can predict the situation for the coming months such as the preparation and planning  of winter street maintenance or forest harvesting.

Climate change estimates for the coming months | practical pilot services, Part B

15.6.2022 | 10:00 - 12:00 am (CEST) | Online

The Webinar  “Climate change estimates for the coming months – practical pilot services, Part B” provides useful information about climate change estimates in hydropower, global carbon and greenhouse gas emissions. The main purpose of this webinar (part B) is to present the pilots’ services regarding climate change estimates that can predict the situation for the coming months, such as the preparation and planning of hydrology related issues (e.g. hydropower management) as well as estimate and find improved information about the sources of global carbon and greenhouse gas emissions.


How can EO help manage water resources? Application examples from the e-shape project

10.5.2022 | 13:00 - 17:30 pm (CEST) | Online

The Water Resources Management showcase webinar embraces the multidisciplinary of this field by presenting seven pilot applications that focus on different elements, from inland waters to coastal areas and the ocean, providing a link to different European Directives and Policies - Water and the Marine Strategy Framework Directives, the Floods, the Integrated Coastal Management Directives and the Common Fisheries Policy - and SDGs - Clean Water and Sanitation, Life Below Water and Climate Action. To that end, the webinar is divided in three different thematic sessions organizing the pilot presentations into Inland, Coastal and Ocean Waters. Learn more about our pilot applications here - https://e-shape.eu/index.php/showcases (select SC5 - Water) - and if you are a potential user for any of them do not waste a chance to get to know them better in this webinar. All sessions will happen in the same afternoon, separated by a 10 minute coffee break. This way we provide the opportunity to each attendee to browse through all presentations in the three thematic areas or only concentrate in the session(s) that best fit their profile. In each session, attendees will be presented with the current status of the application, focusing on demonstrating concrete results and use cases for each application to help future users decide on its usefulness in their operational activities.

e-shape Workshop: EuroGEO showcase for Renewable Energy

31.5.2022 | 9:00 - 17:00 pm (CEST) | Online

To support the clean energy transition of the European Green Deal, the sector of Renewable Energy, from education and research to industry, public decision-making and citizens can largely lean on the open-source business-compliant Earth Observation (EO) access to data and supported by cloud facilities provided by the European program Copernicus.

The workshop “e-shape Workshop: EuroGEO showcase for Renewable Energy”, in the framework of the on-going Horizon 2020 project e-shape (described in the section below), will be held on May 31st 2022 and will take place in the Campus Pierre Laffitte, MINES Paris in Sophia Antipolis, France. It will be organized as a hybrid workshop, allowing face to face interaction along with participation through a videoconference system.

The workshop aims at bringing together actors of the value chain from the Earth Observation to Renewable Energy with current or emerging applications based on Copernicus to answer the need of the renewable energy industries and decision-making. This workshop echoes a previous workshop Copernicus4Energy organized by the EU DG-GROW in 2017.


Emerging Earth Observation technologies in support of Health surveillance: From scientific data to knowledge

8.6.2022 | 14:00 - 16:00 (CEST) | Online

The Health webinar will focus on raising awareness to the decision-maker community on the contribution of science in producing knowledge from scientific observations yielding insight into the pollution-linked and vector-borne diseases. The webinar is seeking to raise awareness on developed tools that will:

  • Improve the policy making process and support the assessment of the effectiveness evaluation of measures undertaken by Nations to achieve the goals of international conventions
  • Contribute to the implementation of the GEO work plan through flagships and initiatives
  • Provide high-quality satellite-derived information on air quality in urban environment and give solutions to detected issues
  • Support UE regulators with a roadmap to build integrated early warning systems

Objectives

  • To provide insight into the applications and web services developed
  • To give a short demonstration
  • To address major potentialities for the audience

EO in support of agricultural activities: new horizons

09.6.2022 | 9:00 - 12:30 (CEST) | Online

Earth Observation data is becoming more and more mainstream in agricultural applications. There is however a very large diversity in how it is used, the specific applications, and how it is offered to the different end-users. In this webinar, it will be highlighted how these data can be used for agricultural applications, building on the experiences from e-shape. A specific focus will be on how to create added-value for a wide range of end users, including farmers, advisory services, insurance companies, policy makers and governmental institutes. Seven different use cases will be presented, each with their own specific focus and target group.


Tools to aid Site and Platform Coordinators in assessing site status and existing remote sensing data products

09.6.2022 | 14:00 - 16:00 (CEST) | Online

In the e-shape showcase myEcosystem, the three pilots mySPACE, mySITE and myVARIABLE have joined forces to start an integration of data and information from three worlds, in-situ, satellite and modeling. The aim was to serve focal user groups by offering seamless access to consistently scaled environmental information from various sources at benchmark sites. In the Ecosystem webinar the first concrete outcomes from each pilot as well as the benefit for site and platform coordinators in their daily work and how it serves as pilot for current and future eLTER activities, will be presented. The interactive mode of the webinar is very important as we would like to collect feedback from our users on further needs regarding data and services in daily life to facilitate reporting and monitoring activities.

Earth Observation in support of disasters resilience for the protection of citizens, economies and ecosystems

16.6.2022 | 10:00 - 13:00 (CEST) | Online

The webinar “Earth Observation in support of disasters resilience for the protection of citizens, economies and ecosystems”, is organised by the Disasters Resilience Showcase (SC6) in the framework of the on-going Horizon 2020 project e-shape, and it will be held on Thursday, 16 June 2022.

The webinar will bring together actors of the value chain from the Earth Observation to Disasters Resilience to showcase state-of-the-art products and services in support of disasters resilience for the protection of citizens, economies and ecosystems. The target audience is stakeholders, including decision makers and key users from both the public and the private sector, as well as the scientific community. Interaction is foreseen through testimonies of end users for each pilot as well as a Q&A and open discussion session.

Objectives

  • To present the six pilots of the e-shape showcase "Disasters Resilience" in interaction with some of their identified end-users, empowering dedicated co-design approaches developed within e-shape;
  • To invite other Copernicus EO-based applications or prototypes developers in the domain of Disasters Resilience with identified users, opening the scope to other disaster types, but also considering different time and spatial scales;
  • To have an updated overview of the current and emerging Copernicus offers in terms of data, information and cloud services with a focus on the disasters resilience sector;
  • To discuss the way forward to develop new applications based on Copernicus to support the disasters resilience in line with the priorities and the goals set by the Sendai Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction and SDGs 2 & 11 and supporting EuroGEO.
