Continuously in contact with the Earth Observation data users, starting in the 1990’s with the pioneering use of the ERS satellites data, then as Envisat mission manager, Henri Laur is now responsible for the management of the Earth Observation missions operated by ESA, including the Copernicus Sentinel missions, the ESA Earth Explorer missions and the ESA Third Party missions with its growing availability of commercial data.
During those three decades of growth of the Earth Observation data user communities, both in quantity and diversity, Henri Laur gained experience with the continuous race between the increasing satellite data supply, in particular with SAR, and the equally increasing user demand, in particular from public services.
The EUSAR 2024 conference programme as well as information about sessions and speakers will be available soon.
