Urban resilience refers to the ability of an urban system to maintain or rapidly return to desired functions in the face of a disturbance, to adapt to change, and to quickly transform systems that limit current or future adaptive capacity.

Mitigation and adaptation actions that enhance the resilience of cities need to be based on a sound understanding and quantification of the drivers of urban transformation and settlement structures, human and urban vulnerability, and of local and global climate change, as defined in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the New Urban Agenda.

Copernicus, as the means for the establishment of a European capacity for Earth Observation (EO), is based on continuously evolving Core Services.

CURE uses information from the Land Monitoring Service (CLMS), the Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS), the Climate Change Service (C3S) and the Emergency Management Service (EMS) to deal with the multidimensional nature of urban resilience and data and products - from contemporary satellite missions achieve spatially disaggregated environmental information at local (neighbourhood) and city scales.

Therefore, CURE addresses urban resilience, with the development of eleven cross-cutting applications among the above Copernicus Core Services capable of coping with the required scale and granularity, by also integrating or exploiting third-party data, in-situ observations and modelling.

CURE is introducing novel ideas on how applications for climate change adaptation and mitigation, healthy cities and social environments, as well as energy and economy will be developed across Copernicus Core Services.

Job Description

The research associate will collaborate with the CURE consortium and will focus on combining of data from the Copernicus Core Services with other EO data sources to achieve methodologies for the CURE cross-cutting applications.

In the context of the project, the main tasks assigned to the candidate are :

  • Copernicus Core Services Data processing and analysis.
  • Copernicus Satellite Data processing and analysis.
  • Copernicus Contributing Missions Data processing and analysis.
  • Methodology and software development for Copernicus data analysis and cross-cutting applications development.
  • Project Reporting.
