PROBA-V Symposium 2018

Description: 

The Proba-V mission was launched in May 2013 to ensure continuation of the SPOT-VGT 15 years global vegetation time series, bridging the gap to Sentinel-3 for land applications. After more than 4 years of successful operations, while fulfilling all mission core objectives, Proba-V is consolidating its role as key data provider to the Copernicus Global Land Service and as valuable complement to Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-3 suite of optical sensors.

In this context, and with the intention to further promote the scientific and operational exploitation of Proba-V data, the European Space Agency (ESA) in cooperation with the Belgian Science Policy Office (BELSPO) agreed to organize the second “Proba-V Symposium”.


The Proba-V Symposium intends to address the following objectives:

  • Provide an overview on current mission status, data quality and Cal/Val results
  • Gather the Proba-V scientific and user community and foster collaboration
  • Encourage international collaborations on land, water and cryosphere applications
  • Reinforce Proba-V's role as complement to Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-3 missions
  • Discuss data harmonization and synergy across sensors/missions
  • Provide a forum to report results of on-going science activities using Proba-V data
  • Promote the use of Proba-V data for downstream operational services
  • Consult the user community to formulate recommendations for products improvements
