Improving EO services industry involvement in EU space programmes and initiatives workshop

The workshop “Improving EO services industry involvement in EU space programmes and initiatives” organised by EARSC with the support of the European Commission was held on 26 April 2017 in DG-GROW in Brussels .

EARSC GEOcradle workshop

The workshop aimed at discussing concrete ways for the improved industry involvement in the exploitation of Copernicus Services and the delivery of GEO vision. The event attracted more than 90 people.

The morning session underlined the key priorities of GEO with regards to industry engagement notably through the example of the GEO-CRADLE project. Project partners provided a concrete account of tools that can help EU industry develop business in the Balkans, North Africa and Middle East.

The afternoon session brought together representatives from the European Entrusted Entities (EEEs), institutional stakeholders and industrial actors. After presenting the preliminary findings of a study undertaken by EARSC and PWC, a series of three round-tables consisting of representatives of EEEs and EO services company representatives, provided the opportunity for a lively exchange on the current interfaces between the Copernicus services and the industry.
