BalticSatApps formed solid base for Copernicus activities in Baltic Sea Region
The three-year project BalticSatApps – focusing on the development of novel innovations leveraging Earth Observation (EO) data from the EU’s Copernicus Programme – is approaching its end. In addition to the events it has organised, the project has been preparing guidelines and materials aiming at assisting also other actors to conduct innovation activities focusing on EO. The BalticSatApps website will be the main channel for making available the results of the project.
From accessing EO data to the commercialisation of EO-based services – we invite you to have a look at our result materials!
Accessing and using Earth Observation data
Through its various user uptake activities, BalticSatApps has strived to make tangible the opportunities that EO data offers, and lower the threshold of deploying the data in practice.

Promoting innovation in Earth Observation-based services
BalticSatApps has conducted innovation generation activities that have aimed at the creation of new EO-leveraging services and startup companies. These activities have taken place in the form of innovation competitions and hackathons.

Commercialisation of Earth Observation-based services
The commercialisation activities consisted of three main parts: staff training of the participating science and technology parks, organising two rounds of acceleration programme pilots, and collecting experiences into a knowledge base.
- BalticSatApps Acceleration Programme in Earth Observation
- Key competence requirements for incubator staff and competence improvement measures to run a successful accelerator for Earth Observation teams
- Knowledge Base
