With its provision of space data and information from its services, the Union’s Earth Observation and Monitoring Programme Copernicus represents a European success story. The Space Strategy for Europe, adopted at end of 2016, sets also important accents for action for Copernicus in the coming years. The main strategic aspects of this strategy, especially with respect to Earth Observation are presented, as well as first preparatory steps towards the new funding period after 2020.
