KEPLER (Key Environmental monitoring for Polar Latitudes and European Readiness) is a multi-partner initiative, built around the operational European Ice Services and Copernicus information providers, to prepare a road map for Copernicus to deliver an improved European capacity for monitoring and forecasting the Polar Regions. KEPLER will run from 1st January 2019 to 31st March 2021, has a budget of €2.9M, 15 project partners, and is an EU Horizon 2020 Coordination and Support Action (CSA).

BACKGROUND The marine environment in the Polar Regions is changing; with this comes to both challenges and opportunities. Earth Observation (EO) has a key role to play in the sustainable development of the region, and the information services provided must be flexible to respond to the changing needs and conditions. Importantly they must provide much-needed information for Arctic peoples and wider society, science, private sector and decision-makers.
