A new name for the GMES programme: Copernicus
Copernicus is the new name of the European Commission’s Earth Observation Programme, previously known as GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security). This change of name marks a new phase in the programme. Together with Galileo, Copernicus can now be considered a fully-fledged flagship Space Programme of the European Union.
