ecopotentialvideo

What better way to understand this important Horizon 2020 project than a simple video? This handcrafted video explains our project through simple animations and a story involving Peter, a protected area manager, and Amy, an ECOPOTENTIAL scientist. The video will take you on a journey through the different ecosystems targeted by ECOPOTENTIAL, explain why and how Earth Observation is used to measure and monitor ecosystems and their services they provide, and how the project will ultimately benefit society.

ECOPOTENTIAL is an European project, which is coordinated byt the Italian Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) italià, and CREAF participates as a partner.
