ESA inspection

Wageningen professor of Geo-information science Professor Michael Schaepman led a team of twelve scientists that carried out the science review of the Earth Observation Envelope Programme of the European Space Agency. The research project, which is worth 1.2 billion euros, is one of the three sections within the largest European satellite programme. Schaepman was honoured to lead the review, and believes this will be good for Wageningen. ‘A director at ESA told me that this will increase the credibility, quality and visibility of Wageningen.’ / MW
