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.

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!

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.


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.

Jan312017 Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

The Global Space Congress brings together regional and international stakeholders, innovators, space agencies, industry and academics to showcase new applications of space technology and discuss the future road map of space policy and strategy. Our Turkish member, TUBITAK and our partners from GEO-CRADLE will be present to discuss on how to harness the value of satellite data to support capacity building in the MENA region. 

Feb012017 Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom

A global space revolution is being fuelled by the exploration of new data sets, enabled by satellites, to deliver data products in response to user needs. The conference will bring together data users from across the economy with data generators from the space, sector as well as pooling innovators and entrepreneurs from academia and the commercial sector with regulators, legislators and venture capitalists.

Feb022017 Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Organized as part of GEO-CRADLE project in cooperation with the Geography and Urban Planning Department at UAEU, this regional workshop will bring together local and regional academic and Earth Observation industry representatives. The workshop will focus on identifying the potential local challenges hindering the Earth Observation (EO) market uptake and business performances, while seeking solutions to enhance growth and innovation in the geo-information sector in the MENA region.
