  • Participate in the 6th Quarterly of the SCO France

    Human activities, climate change and biodiversity decline are intimately linked. Ideal for monitoring the evolution of natural areas, satellite data give us the keys to understand these complex interactions and to act accordingly. On Tuesday 27 September 2022, the sixth "SCO France Quarterly" will demonstrate this, with three projects dedicated to preserving priority areas of interest.

  • Call for projects 2023

    On Thursday 1er September, the SCO in France launched its 4th call for projects, a consultation also opened to Europe. All themes related to the impacts of climate change and meeting the criteria of a SCO project are eligible, without restriction on the geographical location of experimentation. Two information webinars are organised in mid-September and mid-October.

  • 27 June 2022: 3 years and a founding Charter

    There is strength in numbers, which the SCO has been demonstrating since June 2019. On 27 June 2022 at the Cité de l'Espace in Toulouse, several members met, some remotely, to salute this anniversary with not 3, but 29 candles: the first 29 signatures of the founding Charter.

  • www.tropisco.org: follow tropical deforestation in real time

    Labelled SCO in March 2021, the TropiSCO project is putting its demonstration platform online. The interactive maps of deforestation are eye-opening and demonstrate the urgency of protecting these ecosystems. www.tropisco.org, a must-see.

  • VietSCO at the heart of France-Vietnam cooperation

    Accepted as SCO project in 2020, the VIETSCO project is doing double duty with, on the one hand, a restitution workshop held in Hanoi on 16 and 17 June and, on the other hand, a dedicated presentation on the occasion of the visit to CNES of a Vietnamese delegation on 11 July 2022.

  • 7e SCO France meeting

  • Pleiades data in SCO projects

    Pleiades satellite imagery offers a wide range of potential applications, particularly in the area of climate change impacts. Where to find these data, how to use them and how to make them talk? On Thursday 30 June 2022, during the 5th Quarterly Meeting of the SCO France, 3 SCO projects showed their concrete use of this data with, as a preamble, a presentation of the DINAMIS portal.

  • ADOPT: at the heart of regional nature parks

    In the context of climate change, regional nature parks are playing a more crucial role than ever for France's natural heritage and regional planning. In a Living Lab approach, the ADOPT project is dedicated exclusively to meeting their needs through Earth observation. And to follow the project as closely as possible, the team is launching its Newsletter.

  • How about Mangroves?

    Those who have entered their humid maze know what an extraordinary ecosystem mangroves are. Between land and sea, this unique environment is essential for biodiversity, especially in the face of the impacts of climate change. A SCO project is devoted entirely to this and is preparing to test its platform in the autumn.
