What is eoVox?
Following on from a survey conducted by ESA on the European and Canadian EO service industry, ESA has initiated a number of activities to further explore issues that affect the complete EO service sector; eoVox is one of these activities.
eoVox aims to gather views and comments from all companies within the industry and investigate how their common interests can be best represented via an industrial trade association.
eoVox is therefore an opportunity for all companies to voice their viewpoints on how the Earth observation value adding industry should be shaped. The eoVox study will use the information gathered to help define the public funding required to incubate the industry as a whole.
The results will be looked at carefully by ESA in planning for the period 2008-13 to make sure that the needs of the industry are supported at the right scale, with the right mechanisms and of adequate duration. This is your opportunity to influence this process, by ensuring that your views and needs are heard.
About the Workshop
The eoVox Consortium is pleased to announce a FREE one-day workshopdedicated to the common interests of the Earth Observation value adding industry. The workshop will be held at ESA’s ESRIN site in Frascati (near Rome), Italy on 14 September 2006.
The workshop will be an excellent opportunity to capture the views of all stakeholders in the future of the Earth observation value-adding industry in Europe and Canada.
During the day presentations will be given based on the material produced during the study, with “open forum” sessions to capture a wide range of perspectives on the presented material. The workshop will be structured to ensure that the views of participants can be clearly and freely expressed.
The consortium is creating working documents – to be made public in advance of the workshop – that will provide the initial starting point for the debate. Brief presentations of the study’s findings will be used to prompt input, discussion and debate from the delegates. Book your place now, to have your say.
