ECOPOTENTIAL benefits from strong links with other European and international projects and programmes, to avoid duplication of activities and to foster synergies between the different research groups.
Important links exist with the sister EU project SWOS: Satellite-based Wetland Observation Service (http://swos-service.eu/), funded under the same SC5-16-2014 H2020 Call. One important Protected Area (the Camargue) is included in both projects and it is a natural site where to compare and combine the approaches of the two projects ECOPOTENTIAL and SWOS.
A Memorandum of Understanding has been signed with the EU FP7 Project EU BON (http://www.eubon.eu/), also with the goal of continuing some of the activities of EU BON, after its conclusion, inside ECOPOTENTIAL.
The activities of ECOPOTENTIAL are conducted in the framework of GEO, the Group on Earth Observations, and GEOSS, the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (http://www.earthobservations.org), to which ECOPOTENTIAL provides significant support.
