The "Space and Society: bridging the missing links" project consists of a series of events from March to July, helping generate and maintain political support for current and future space programmes; raising awareness on a larger scale on the announced benefits from the European space policy; defining new and concrete actions to be implemented in this context. Eurisy is a contributor to the consortium of partners organising these events.
Eurisy informs regions and cities across Europe on the opportunities of satellite applications as tools to support regional social, economic and environmental policies.
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.
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.
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 PRACTICESGo to page >
Pioneering local and regional authorities and SMEs from across Europe already use satellite applications in their daily job. For the last seven years Eurisy has been collecting testimonials on how satellite applications have helped them in practice. Click on the map to see some success stories!view larger map
USES OF SATELLITE APPLICATIONSGo 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.
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.
EVENTSGo to page >
These are some of the events we will organise or contribute to this year. To see all events, go to the events page.
This workshop will seek to make an inventory of the current precision agriculture solutions that have been proven to work, and of the needs and constraints of their users, in order to pave the way for a more extensive use of effective satellite services, whether based on EO or GNSS.
The event will inform SMEs and public administrations from the Baltic region on the opportunities of using operational services derived from satellite applications.
It will offer an opportunity for stakeholders to identify avenues for increased cooperation between industry, SMEs and public administration in order to strengthen innovation and competitiveness in the region, as well as improve public services for all: individuals, companies and the general public.
