The main aim is to create conditions for sustainable economic development through the increased use of Earth observation products and services for environmental applications. This purpose serves the higher goal of effective use of Earth observation for decision making and management of economic and sustainable development processes. Establishment of a central feedback node that digests and shares information on incubators, innovation, successes, experiences, visibility and provides brokerage and advice on resource mobilization.

The need to create such service has been noticed during the project GEONetCab (GEO Net for Capacity Building), which is predecessor of the EOPOWER project. Within the project GEONetCab, Space Research Centre of the Polish Academy of Sciences (CBK PAN) conducted the research in order to identify opportunities and bottlenecks on the Polish market concerning earth observation (EO) sector.
