The NCEO is a partnership of over 100 scientists from 26 institutions whose mission is to unlock the full potential of Earth observation data.
Our scientists use data from Earth observation satellites to monitor global and regional changes in the environment, as well as to learn more about the Earth system and improve predictions of future environmental conditions. Our scientists collaborate within eight broad research categories and we hold an annual conference to bring all these scientific advances together.
NCEO is based in the United Kingdom. We work closely with the UK satellite industry and international space organisations to ensure that our scientific understanding is delivered to the wider community. By forming collaborations between business and our scientists we have informed innovation in Earth Observation as well as pushed forward the cutting edge of scientific understanding.
