Early detection is key to effective intervention in plant health. This colloquium, organised by EPPO and Euphresco and held in conjunction with the EPPO Council 2018 on 27 September 2018, offers experts from different disciplines and managers of plant health services the opportunity to exchange experience and ideas on using remote sensing data to monitor plant health. Eurisy Secretary General, Mr Toby Clark will be charing the discussions throughout the day. The book of abstracts is available for download here.
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.
PUBLIC AUTHORITIES 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), 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.

This conference is organised by Eurisy, the Basilicata region, the Network of European Regions Using Space Technologies (NEREUS), the Italian Space Agency (ASI), and the TeRN consortium (Technologies for Earth Observations and Natural Hazards) as platform for public and private managers to exchange know-how and experience in the use of innovative technologies, notably satellite applications, to support the management and safeguard of historical cities and the enhancement of the cultural and creative sectors.
