38th Annual EARSeL Symposium, Chania, Crete, Greece, 9-12 July 2018
ECOPOTENTIAL has been widely presented at the 38th annual symposium of the European Association of Remote Sensing that has taken place in Chania (GR). ECOPOTENTIAL partners from Ben Gurion University, CERTH, FORTH, and EURAC were there presenting results achieved in the framework of ECOPOTENTIAL research. The ECOPOTENTIAL photo exhibition is still on going with numerous attendees. All the attendees had the chance to know more about ECOPOTENTIAL. The symposium had 16 keynote speakers and about 250 participants with high calibre presentations.
Discussions seemed not to have an ending in the EARSeL NASA joint Workshop sessions, and all sessions were at least 30 minutes prolonged. EU and US scientists were highly engaged and interacted. Representation of the Italian Space Agency gave also a good contribution to the brand new MedRIN (Mediterranean Information Network), established by Greece, Cyprus, Israel, Turkey and Italy with the support of NASA to tackle issues about Land Cover and Land Use remote sensing applications towards the WEF nexus. MedRIN shall seek acknowledgement by GOFC GOLD as one of its global networks. Matters shall develop fast next months. All info at http://symposium.earsel.org/38th-symposium-Chania/
