Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


The Space Applications Institute (SAI) has the objective of the generation of relevant, timely and accurate information from remote sensing and space systems. The biosphere, lithosphere, atmosphere and hydrosphere are all considered in this context, with work ranging from fundamental research to the operational use of remote sensing. This involves work supporting the sectorial policies of the European Union concerning agriculture, forestry, environment, aid to development and regional aid, and work to promote, disseminate and support remote sensing applications and services in the Earth observation industry, research institutions and government organizations. These tasks reflect the Institute's neutrality, pan-European perspective and compliance with the subsidiarity principle. The Institute's work in 1996 was spread over four domains. These are:

- Institutional research;
- Institutional support;
- Competitive activities;
- Exploratory research.
