Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


SAI's 200 staff, students and scientific visitors work in six Units, each with a clear thematic/ strategic focus, supported by the Directorate: Agricultural Information Systems, Marine Environment, Environmental Mapping and Modellling, Advanced Techniques, Centre for Earth Observation, and Monitoring Tropical Vegetation. SAI's objective is deriving timely, accurate, policy-relevant, policy-sensitive information from earth observation datasets. This agenda is mainly driven by the information requirements of the Research and Technological development and Demonstration policy. In addition, the SAI's work responds to the information needs of DGs for non-Framework Programme policies, such as Forestry, remote-sensing in agriculture, or humanitarian de-mining projects. The Institute will increasingly focus research this way, responding to elements of EU policy which might require the development of new sensors and new systems.
