The HLF 2018 will serve as a platform for providing updates and recommendations on the potential of space innovations to address new and emerging sustainable development challenges, building on the outcomes as highlighted in the Dubai Declaration of 2016, recommendations from the High Level Forum in November 2017 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates and the UNISPACE+50 in June 2018 in Vienna. Eurisy President, Ms Dominique Tilmans will join the event on 15 November for a panel on 'Space Society-advancing the societal benefits of space-related activities" to present our methodology and work in bridging space and society.
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.

Space-enabled data offers solutions for the betterment of life alongside a wealth of new and unimagined business and science opportunities. One of the key drivers of DATA.SPACE 2019 is to raise awareness of the commercial opportunities that are being created by the democratisation of space, providing a platform for thought-leaders across start-ups, investors, and decision, policy, knowledge, and data makers to network and discover our tomorrow, today.
This major international conference attracts delegates drawn from a broad spectrum of global academia, government and industries across many sectors, including energy, marine & maritime, sustainable cities, agriculture & aquaculture, life sciences, transport, and so much more. Eurisy is lending its support and network to a session focused on space for society.
Organised by Agir pour la Télémédecine, Aquihealth and CREAI Nouvelle Aquitaine, the 2018 edition of Pro Digital Health will gather together health professionals around the theme of E-health and new technologies and to exchange on how these can help medical and care practioners, better diagnose, treat, prevent, coordinate and help their patients. Information derived from satellite-based data and signals can help improve public health services in sectors such as, telemedicine and patient monitoring.
To highlight the cross-sector knowledge and technology transfer opportunities, Eurisy will be organising a parallel session dedicated to Space&Health on April 5, 2018.
