Industry Survey Ending June we presented the industry survey results to an audience of EARSC members and invited guests. The final report is expected to be published in September. The study has identified a population of 319 EO service companies in Europe and Canada and the sector is employing about 5087 people with estimated revenues of 762Mio€ in 2012.
AGM We have had a very successful working day during this year’s EARSC AGM, sharing information about the status of Copernicus, GEO and discussing future opportunities for the Service Industry within export market and ESA initiatives to approach International Financial Institutions.
It was agreed that the next board meeting will be dedicated to a review of EARSC strategy.
Export markets and finding the best way of accessing them were the main topics under discussion at our afternoonworkshop during the EARSC AGM. Following the workshop on Export markets, EARSC will start a process to develop an export plan and activities for the industry.
