Starting in March 2021, the Food Security TEP will host data of the European Ecostress Hub project realized by Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology. Data is made publicly available, more details on the data access are here. Click here for more information on the NASA ECOSTRESS sensor and the European Ecostress Hub project.
In November 2020, a major update of the Food Security TEP has been released, resulting in platform version 1.9.0.
Some highlights of the latest version are:
- The platform is now able to handle creation of collections of remote data
- Security improvements
Moreover, the following improvements are avilable ro users now:
- GUI app usability improvement

The 9th ESA Advanced Training Course on Land Remote Sensing with the focus on Agriculture has been hosted by Université catholique of Louvain during the week of 16-20/09/2019 (see program). This course was dedicated to training the next generation of Earth Observation scientists and experts from agriculture and food security related agencies to exploit data from EO missions (e.g. the Copernicus Sentinels) for science and applications development in the domain of agriculture. With 94 participants (73 students and scientists as well as 21 experts from national and international agencies) coming from 35 different countries, this course has been a big success. In addition to ESA staff, 8 European professors and international experts introduced concepts and shared practical applications.
Hatfield Consultants, Canada have done great work in explaining their "EO Mangrove Service to support sustainable aquaculture development" in a very beautiful 2-minutes video! The video can be either accessed on our videos homepage or directly on YouTube. Just follow our Food Security TEP playlist, more content will come up regularly!
