The GDP impact of the Copernicus space programme

We developed a methodology to estimate the GDP impact of space activities in Europe for DG GROW of the European Commission. We applied this to the EU Copernicus programme, to produce a quantitative assessment of its economic and employment impacts. The estimates were made using the E3ME macro-sectoral model to calculate the supply-chain impacts of the programme’s spending across EU Member States.
