SAFI Newsletter Issue 1

It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to the first issue of the SAFI newsletter, introducing our team, highlighting potential applications, and the possibilities being unlocked by SAFI. I am also proud to lead the SAFI team in this exciting venture, this synergy if you will, which links a number of established research and industrial areas, and wells of expertise, to form the foundations of a real support service to our fisheries and aquaculture sectors.

SAFI is a synergy of people of multi-disciplinary expertise, weaving knowledge and experience under a common spirit and goal. As such, SAFI is a synergy of backgrounds, focusing highly-skilled research expertise and dynamic European SMEs on a common purpose. It is putting environmental monitoring from space to work for Blue Growth initiatives at national, regional and international level, boosting European industrial competitiveness in our Aquaculture and Fisheries sectors.

SAFIs confluence of talent and expertise is, at its heart, focused on continuously developing, validating and adapting the utility of COPERNICUS services to the reality of our changing world, and as project manager, I am truly excited to lead such synergies between people and expertise within Such A Fantastic Initiative.

Enjoy your reading,
