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.

These are some of the events we will organise or contribute to this year. To see all events, go to the events page.

Sep242019 Rotterdam, The Netherlands

The objective of the event is to showcase how the European Union’s Copernicus satellite programme is creating jobs and business opportunities while monitoring our planet.

The agenda foresees interactive masterclasses with real business cases, matchmaking sessions and business presentations. Within the framework of the Space4Cities initiative, Eurisy will contribute to the event by illustrating a testimonial from a public administration using Earth observation to enhance infrastructure maintenance.

Oct082019 Nosalowy Dwór, Zakopane

The International Commission for Alpine Rescue (ICAR) comprises 103 members from 37 countries. Its main objectives are to provide a structure for research into rescue techniques, elaborate prevention strategies, and standardise equipment used. The Congress brings together professional mountain rescue workers from all around the world. Four separate commissions (air, medical, terrestrial and avalanche), as well as dog handler’s sub-commission, work together to find solutions to issues which affect rescue teams everywhere. This year, Eurisy is joining the event with a talk on the Galileo Search & Rescue Service and the Advanced Mobile Location (AML) solution.

Oct182019 Washington D.C, United States

The United Nations, through its Programme on Space Applications implemented by UNOOSA, and the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) are co-organizing the Workshop on Space Technology for Socio-Economic Benefits on the theme "Ensuring inclusiveness through space-based applications and space exploration" to provide space emerging countries with capacity building opportunities in using space science, technologies, applications and exploration in support of sustainable economic, social and environmental development and on the role of industry. On this ocassion, Eurisy will be supporting the talks with a presention on "Encouraging the take- up of satellite applications through joined up government. The cases of the adoption of telemedicine and AML in Europe".
