LOCAL AND REGIONAL AUTHORITIES

Eurisy informs regions and cities across Europe on the opportunities of satellite applications as tools to support regional social, economic and environmental policies.

SMEs

Eurisy helps SMEs evaluate how operational satellite applications can support them in improving business processes, enhancing their existing products and services, or creating new ones.

SPACE COMMUNITY

Eurisy works with the space community (agencies, industry, service providers) to involve them in a dialogue about how space developments can best support users in their current societal challenges.

MEMBERS

Eurisy’s activities are mandated and financed by its members: most European space agencies. Eurisy’s members shape space policies and influence investments in space infrastructure.

 

REGIONS, CITIES AND SMEs SHARE GOOD PRACTICES

USES OF SATELLITE APPLICATIONS

Go to page >

Satellite images provide information about places, spaces, as well as spatial phenomena. Satellite navigation indicates absolute location, relative movement and time. Satellite telecommunication infrastructure ensures connectivity when terrestrial connections are down or inexistent.

The applications resulting from these technological capabilities are often used together and in combination with data from a multitude of sources – whether field measurements, statistics, historical data, or even tweets – to deliver useful digital services that allow us to navigate, to make decisions, or to communicate in new ways.

See more on applications here.

EUROPEAN INVESTMENTS IN SPACE

Europe invests in satellite infrastructure through two major programmes, Galileo and Copernicus. The resulting applications are expected to bring growth, jobs, and better quality of life for Europe's citizens.

Galileo, Europe' own state-of-the-art Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), will provide accurate and guaranteed positioning for all types of civilian applications: including car navigators, mobile phones, maritime, road, rail and air transport. More on Galileo.

Copernicus, Europe's own Earth Observation system, will provide free, full and open access to a wealth of important environmental data from a variety of different sources, including satellite imagery. More on Copernicus.
