The poster summarizes the implementation of the Innovative Pilot on Biodiversity; WP 6.2.1 developed within NextGEOSS project. The pilot focuses on generating remote sensing –enabled essential biodiversity variables (RS-enabled EBVs) by means of high- resolution satellite data using an empirical approach. From the RS-enabled EBVs, which were initially proposed to be derived from high-resolution satellite data, leaf area index (LAI) was selected as one of the most important vegetation biophysical parameters as well as the EBVs. Sentinel-2 data (Level-2A product) was used and further LAI was retrieved using the relationship between LAI and Enhanced Vegetation Index
