The RUS Service is open to European citizens willing to discover and use Copernicus core products and datasets, such as EU public sector organisations (e.g. research laboratories, academic institutions) and EU private sector entities (e.g. small and medium enterprises) that are willing to perform R&D or teaching activities. Commercial and operational activities cannot be carried out on the basis of the RUS Service.

Considering resource constraints, the RUS service can be offered to each user for a limited amount and time and including ICT/Expert/Data resources compatible with declared uptake objectives and current user demand.

Persons outside the European Union willing to access the RUS Service should first liaise with us to check their eligibility. For such requests, the decision to grant them the access to the service will be made on a case-by-case basis.
