First Destination Earth User eXchange

This free-to-attend event will be hosted virtually and in person on 15th February 2023.

What is the first Destination Earth User eXchange?

This is the first of a series of regular events to establish, grow and nurture a community of DestinE stakeholders.

DestinE partners have decided to establish such events to inform the community on the progress in implementing DestinE and, at the same time, identifying stakeholders or prospective partners and understand the needs of the community so that the initiative can develop in synergy with its (potential) users. The User eXchange also aims at identifying prospective partners and understand stakeholder expectations and possible avenues for interaction.

What is Destination Earth?

The Directorate-General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG-CNECT) of the European Commission has entrusted the European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF), the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) with the implementation of the Destination Earth (DestinE) initiative.

Destination Earth (DestinE) aims to develop – on a global scale - a highly accurate digital model of the Earth to monitor and predict the interaction between natural phenomena and human activities. As part of the European Commission’s Green Deal and Digital Strategy, DestinE will contribute to achieving the objectives of the twin transition, green and digital.

A broad stakeholder engagement is key to the success of the DestinE initiative and the 3E have been cooperating closely in developing a joint strategy towards user engagement and partnerships. This strategy includes setting up an open stakeholder dialogue aimed at the wider community ensuring engagement of all relevant players. The DestinE User eXchange is intended to become a central building block of this dialogue.
