The meeting with representative of EC JRC at the Space State Agency of Ukraine was held on June 16, 2015

Associate director of Space Research Institute NAS Ukraine and SSA Ukraine prof. Natalia Kussul and representative of the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (EC JRC) Guido Lemoine took part in the meeting with Space State Agency of Ukraine (SSAU).

During the meeting the state of satellite agromonitoring in Ukraine was discussed, as well as the prospects of cooperation in this domain with the European Union and ways of interaction for public authorities to implement satellite monitoring in Ukraine (at the moment an agreement on cooperation between the Ministry of Agrarian Policy of Ukraine and SSAU is already signed).

Ukrainian institutions, including Space Research Institute and Integration-Plus LTD, over the last 5 years actively participate in the international scientific programs and have world-class achievements in the field of satellite agromonitoring. They successfully cooperate with the international programs of global agromonitoring (such as GEOGLAM, JECAM) and institutions of the European Commission, including the EC JRC, and the UN. On the basis of such background the development of further cooperation is planned.

After the meeting is was planned to held an International Workshop supported by the European Commission on 22-23 October 2015 and to make a pilot project to demonstrate the applications of satellite agromonitoring.
