Co-ReSyF is a 3-year project (2016-2018) funded by the European Union, within the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 687289. The project supports research applications using Earth Observation (EO) data for Coastal Water Research. Co-ReSyF will create a cloud platform, which simplifies integration of EO data use into multi-disciplinary research activities. This platform aims to be user friendly and accessible to inexperienced scientists as well as EO and coastal experts. We will reach a wide community of coastal and oceanic researchers, who are offered the opportunity to experience, test and guide the development of the platform, whilst using it as a tool for their own research.
