It is a collaborative project between the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Southern Observatory (ESO) and the European Association for Astronomy Education (EAAE), with support of EUMETSAT, GMD (the German National Research Center for Information Technology) and NSC (the Norwegian Space Centre).
This programme is comprised of five interrelated sub-programmes that address some of the connections between Sea and Space in various natural ways and at different levels. It has strong educational components and is primarily directed towards Europe's middle and upper school students. Nevertheless, it is mostly web-based and will also be of interest to the public.
