The Université catholique de Louvain has brought together an international team (link to the “project team” page) of highly recognized scientific experts who will work together with trusted value adding industrial companies, to deliver the high standards and expectations set out in this initiative.
The CCI Land Cover project aims to synthesize the needs for a variety of model development and application groups. The involvement of the climate research community as users is a cornerstone of this CCI Land Cover project and is planned throughout the project for 3 different milestones: the users’ requirements, the product specifications and the impact assessment. In other to effectively bridge the gap between the EO community and the broader climate research community, different levels of interactions between players are foreseen. This dialogue will be coordinated by Wageningen University.
