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.

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".

Oct212019 Washington D.C, United States

The upcoming International Astronautical Congress (IAC) 2019 will be held in Washington D.C., United States, between 21-25 October 2019. An intense week during which all space players will gather to discuss the advancement and progress of space in its various features under this year’s theme “Space: The power of the past, the promise of the future”. Eurisy will contribute to the #IAC2019 and present its work during the IAF’s “Symposium on Integrated Applications” (Session B5.2 and B5.3) with two papers. One focused on the lessons learned from raising awareness on space applications and a second, on the identified policy bottlenecks to the wide scale use of #satapps in health and emergency calling sectors.

Nov192019 Bremen, Germany

The 3rd edition of Space Tech Expo Europe is a dedicated supply-chain and engineering event for manufacturing, design, test and engineering services for spacecraft, subsystems and space-qualified components. The exhibition and free-to-attend conference draws attendance from thousands of industry leaders, decision makers, engineers, specifiers and buyers. In response to increasing interest in Smallsats across Europe, Space Tech Expo is launching an exhibition and conference dedicated to this fast-growing sector of the space industry. Discover first-rate exhibitors, a stellar line-up of conference speakers and an outstanding agenda expertly devised to ensure attendees get the most out of their visit, whatever their business objectives.
