Memorandum of understanding signed between Molise region and Telespazio

On Friday 6 April, at Campobasso, the Regione Molise and Telespazio will sign a memorandum of understanding for the development of a technology programme entitled “Geodatabase: Europe’s first cluster of centres of excellence for the provision of leading-edge geospatial services”.

The agreement is part of the Molise region’s drive towards encouraging the development of top-class professionals and boosting the local manufacturing base. The idea is to launch carefully selected projects and advance applied research into new satellite technologies for remote sensing and state-of-the art broadband telecommunications.
This policy has enabled Molise to develop the “Molise-Space” initiative, which aims to give the region a role in big European space technology programmes, as well as security and civil protection projects, and to promote the launch of a conference of European regional authorities that use fixed technologies.
The memorandum will be signed by Michele Iorio, President of the Molise regional authority, and Giuseppe Veredice, CEO of Telespazio.
