NEREUS and its member region Apulia will organize an international workshop aimed at presenting how space uses and applications respond to a number of societal and economic challenges of the everyday life. Bringing together the demand and supply side of space services, the idea is to better understand regional needs and potential benefits of an increased uptake.
The event, mainly addressed to European regions, local authorities and their stakeholders, will feature interventions by representatives of the European Commission, Space Agencies as well as representatives from the academic, research and industrial sectors to share knowledge, experiences and expertise. Thematic and best practice sessions, Region-to-Region (R2R) meetings and round table debates will animate the 2-day event.
A special session will be dedicated to students and young professionals, giving them the opportunity to meet representatives from European institutions, industry and academic sector. Final an exceptional “Space Exhibition” will highlight regional, national and European space activities.
A dedicated programme will give all of you, and accompanying people, the opportunity to visit and discover the most striking tourist attractions of the Region: from the blue sea of the Adriatic cost to the heart of the country side with its elegant baroque towns, and the typical white-washed « trullo »houses.
