User Consultation Platform

User Consultation Platform banner

EUSPA spearheads the User Consultation Platform (UCP), a systematic consultation process involving stakeholders utilising position, navigation and time services and technologies. With the aim to gather and analyse user needs and requirements, the UCP ensures timely inputs into the development of user-centric space data services within the European Space Programme, including Copernicus, EGNOS and Galileo, GOVSATCOM, and EU SST.

End users stand at the heart of the EU Space Programme, guiding the development of tailored services to meet their demands.
