PROMOTE is currently a project within the ESA GMES Service Element running over 3 years (Stage 2, 7/2006-7/2009). Within this project tasks and budget are distributed over the partners as proposed to and approved by ESA. By means of an annual review necessary adjustments can be made. Furthermore, ESA can accept further services through dedicated calls or contract change notes. Joining the PROMOTE-2 project requires an agreement between ESA and the PROMOTE-2 coordinator.
In the longer term, the PROMOTE consortium is setting up a durable, distributed, open network of service providers via a Service partnership Protocol. This network shall last beyond the current project and assure links between partners and services working within "core" and "downstream" portions of a future EC-led GMES Atmosphere pilot service and may possibly be funded from different sources. Joining the PROMOTE network requires approval by the PROMOTE network general assembly.As all ESA GSE projects PROMOTE is open to new partners provided that following conditions are met:
