Supporting Marine Earth Observation Educators (SMEE) workshop

EUMETSAT, in partnership with Mercator Ocean International, IOC-UNESCO, IODE and the Ocean Teacher Global Academy (OTGA) invites applications to attend the upcoming Supporting Marine Earth Observation Educators (SMEE) workshop which will be held from 30 May to 17 June 2022. Not registered yet? Applications are still running with a deadline until 3 April 2022.

Supporting Marine Earth Observation Educators


The purpose of this training workshop is to share knowledge, skills, resources and training techniques for attendees to be able to independently train others on available Earth Observation (EO) data and tools. During the course, participants will work with others to create their own (learning) artefacts. This is an interactive knowledge exchange workshop, not a technical training event.

Aims and objectives: 

  • To support marine and earth observation educators in their training activities, by sharing Copernicus Marine data resources provided by Mercator Ocean International, and exchanging experience of different learning approaches.
  • To foster a community of marine EO educators who can collaborate in future.
  • To co-create learning artefacts that can used in participants own training activities and more broadly by the Earth observation community.

Target audience:

This workshop is intended for university teachers, mentors and tutors, as well as staff from National Oceanographic Data Centres, marine research/management institutions and industry professionals who have Earth-observation or marine science related training responsibilities.

Application process:

The deadline to submit the application is 3 April 2022.
