What is ENEON?

ENEON intends to increase the connection between the existing EO networks and the Science & Technology (S&T) communities involved in defining the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), as well as the S&T communities engaged in the assessments, forecasting, and projecting of future developments. ENEON is the instrument that will bring together European networks involved in research and innovation relevant to GEOSS, with a particular focus on the in‐situ segment. ENEON also addresses emerging European networks and sensor development projects to provide future provisions which may not yet be part of GEOSS or Copernicus Services.
