Sentinel 2: Garoua, Lake Chad

13.01.2016 TIGER-BRIDGE contract to continue activities for users in Africa

The aim of the TIGER Bridge project, which is financed by ESA and was started in December 2015, is the continuation of TIGER NET efforts strengthening the EO capacity and knowledge within the African water resource community. This explicitly refers to the antecedent efforts of ESA in this field, which established and developed a TIGER community in the African water sector which plays more and more the role of catalyst in technology transfer and knowledge development for the application of Earth Observation (EO) as e.g. provided by the ESA Sentinel missions.

The antecedent efforts have two major results: an ever increasing community which is becoming an active key player of the applications of EO in the water sector, and the knowledge base, in a certain sense a “TIGER culture".
