We have the pleasure to invite you to a number of seminars that will be held on 13 September 2019 in Brussels (Belgium).

These seminars are organized in the framework of the ECOPROPHET project, a research project on “Improved ECOsystem PROductivity Modelling by Innovative Algorithms and Remotely Sensed PHEnology Indicators", funded by the Belgian Science Policy Office. These seminars are aimed at researchers involved in the modeling of ecosystem phenological metrics and productivity. Specific attention is given to the use of Earth observations in the global scale models.
