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), provides 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, provides free, full and open access to a wealth of important environmental data from a variety of different sources, including satellite imagery. More on Copernicus.

Jun272018 Sofia, Bulgaria

European Innovation Partnerships (EIPs) are European Commission initiatives driven by known challenges, and focusing on societal benefits and a rapid modernisation of the associated sectors and markets. Separated into clusteres and working around 11 priority areas raning from urban mobility to business models,  the EIP Smart Cities and Communities Partnership bring together cities from across Europe to build opportunities in the EU marketplace for smart cities. Eurisy Secretary General, Mr Toby Clark, will be joining the General Assembly to talk on Eurisy's "Smart Cities" initiative. 


Jun282018 Toulouse, France

The Toulouse Space Show is a major global forum dedicated to novel Space solutions, future trends and the new Space economy. Eurisy will host a session during the forum. The session will present three different applications of satellite data and signals to improve cities’ efficiency and sustainability. The experiences of use satellite applications will be presented by local authorities and private companies providing key services in cities.

The session is organised in the framework of the Eurisy’s “Space for Cities” initiative and in cooperation with CNES and NEREUS.
