The European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL) is a scientific network of European remote sensing institutes, coming from both academia and the commercial/industrial sector. It was founded in 1977 under the auspices of the European Space Agency, the Council of Europe and the European Commission. EARSeL has about 250 member laboratories.

The principal activities of EARSeL are stimulating and promoting education and training related to remote sensing and Earth observation as well as providing a network and co-operation possibilities for the experts and agencies in Europe. Moreover, it aims to form a bridge between technology and applications of interest to the wide user community. The main scientific efforts of EARSeL are concentrated in Special Interest Groups (SIGs), which encourage co-operation and foster innovative applications of remote sensing.
