The project Eco4Alps will develop 6 Earth Observation based services that respond to common challenges related to ecosystem mapping and monitoring in the Alpine region: ecosystem mapping, forest disturbance, forest phenology, forest fire recovery, grassland management and grassland abandonment. 

These services will address the specific requirements of key national, regional and international stakeholders active in the monitoring of Alpine ecosystems, including the Mountain Research Initiative and the Alpine Convention.

Eco4Alps also aims to demonstrate the added value of an open and federated network of platforms to provide these services at regional scale and to demonstrate their adequacy and usefulness across Alpine countries.
