The ‘Eyes on Earth’ Roadshow wants to encourage interest in Copernicus Earth Observation Programme amongst young people, students and entrepreneurs; demonstrate exciting careers opportunities in the (space) data driven industry; and help those to build a more successful business through the use of space data. The programme is a combination of plenary information sessions, masterclasses, and technical lectures, combining learning and doing.
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.

Eurisy and the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) decided to join forces to organise a webinar on the legal consequences related to the use of tracing apps during the first phase of the de-confinement. Join us to find out which existing space-based apps can help track the spreading of COVID-19, and what the legal and privacy issues are. The purpose of the webinar is to present the audience operational space-based apps that could help to trace patients, as well as related privacy issues and other challenges. The webinar also aims at presenting the current legal challenges that need to be faced with regard to cyber security.
Eurisy, the National Space Centre and the Blackrock Castle Observatory of the Cork Institute of Technology organise a Copernicus Hackathon online on 9-13 June 2020 on the issue of “Natural and Cultural Heritage”. A special challenge is dedicated to the impacts of Covid-19.
The hackathon will challenge students and IT professionals to use the data made available by the Copernicus Earth Observation System to better protect, manage and promote natural and cultural heritage. A webinar will be held on May 18th.
