- setting-up innovative training programmes for your students, both business programmes for Earth Observation (EO) students and EO programmes for other technical students (engineering, informatics, geology, agronomy, etc.)
- becoming a crossing point between public/private potential customers of innovative applications and the researchers/students’ domain and be recognised as a generator of innovation
- creating an opportunity for your students and researchers to put their capabilities and energy at work with potential customers thus inventing/creating their future job
- having visibility on new ideas, concepts and applications that you could transfer to your local situation, also applying for R&D local funding.
