GEO Update

Survey of GMES service users and other stakeholders

The Copernicus Unit of DG GROW has commissioned Technopolis to carry out a final evaluation of the GMES Initial Operations (GIO) programme (2011-2013).

The programme allowed for the continuation of GMES services in the period between the completion of the pilot operations (Preparatory Actions) and the launch of the new European Earth observation programme Copernicus in April 2014.

As part of the evaluation, we are inviting all GMES stakeholders – especially service users – to complete an online survey, offering their views on the effectiveness of the GIO programme and profiling their data usage and the benefits that this brings.

The questionnaire can be accessed here:
