The goal of the mission was to connect with businesses, in order to form partnerships focused around EO Services. Attendees participated to an extensive program of networking events, briefings, introductions to EU remote sensing firms, investors and customers.
This mission has also allowed both European companies and Australian to build new market opportunities globally.
“It was my best experience in this kind of activities and I thank you very much for giving us the opportunity to be part of it.”
Engaged, enthusiastic, and effective organization. You could feel all the people in the meetings rowing in the same direction. – Antonio Tabasco Cabezas, Remote Sensing Applications and Services Division Manager at GMV
Great initiative: Meeting ‘old’ friends, making new ones and establishing future business connections; Europe and Australia need to work more closely – there is much in common. – Peter Hausknecht, Chief Scientist at Earth-i
