Satellites for sports: ski from the skies above 23 December, 2019 | Author: @Eurisy | | tags: #earthobservation, #satnav, #satcom, #Satellites4Sports Satellites for sports: ski from the skies above@Gorilla

Over the past year, Eurisy has celebrated its 30 years anniversary. Since its inception, it has relentlessly accomplished its mission and proved to be a highly effective tool for “bridging space and society” through various channels, including the organisation of events. Everyone will agree that the recipe for a successful event is about allowing for networking opportunities or letting discussions sometimes go a little “off-piste”. This is the spirit of the series of articles that we initiate today on “Satellites for Sports”, aiming at promoting satellite applications for the sports sector in a kind of informal setting.

Earth Observation data and civil engineering: cost effective solutions for citizen’s safety 29 August, 2019 | Author: @Eurisy | | tags: #EO, #imodi, #surveylab, #civilengineering, #citizenssafety Earth Observation data and civil engineering: cost effective solutions for citizen’s safety @SurveyLab

The use of Earth Observation (EO) data in civil engineering is not common. Yet, something is changing. Italian SME Survey Lab with its expertise in development, distribution and promotion of EO data and geomatics based monitoring systems, took the opportunity of H2020 project I.MODI, to demonstrate the importance of integrating different data streams into the map-based products used by civil engineers.

Satellite-based healthcare solutions: bringing services closer to patients 24 April, 2019 | Author: @Eurisy | | tags: #eHealth Satellite-based healthcare solutions: bringing services closer to patients@Eurisy

Better diagnostics, prevention, care, coordination and information – can satellites play a role in mitigating Europe’s healthcare sector challenges? Together with our members at CNES and the European Space Agency and our partners from ECHAlliance and MEDES we joined the first edition of the Pro Digital Heath Congress to share hands-on examples on how space can make e-health services accessible to all.

Can Earth Observation technology become a tool to contribute to the implementation of a sustainable blue economy? 5 March, 2019 | Author: @Eurisy | | tags: #blueeconomy #sustainableoceans, #earthobservation Can Earth Observation technology become a tool to contribute to the implementation of a sustainable blue economy?@ESA

According to the 2018 Annual Economic Report on EU Blue Economy, it comprises all the economic activities related to oceans, seas and coasts, that cover of established sectors (eg.: Aquaculture, fisheries, etc.) and new ones (eg. Blue bio-economy and biotechnology, etc.). It is important to define what “blue economy” means in order to better explain its relevance to social and economic development and why satellite technologies can be a game-changer in this sense.

Our Sat4Alps project meets emergency user communities at EENA 2018 1 June, 2018 | Author: @Eurisy | | tags: Our Sat4Alps project meets emergency user communities at EENA 2018

Eurisy attended the European Emergency Number Alliance's 2018 EENA Conference & Exhibition in Ljubljana, Slovenia. On the agenda – new technologies and innovation. Or rather how new technologies can benefit and/or support emergency and crisis response services. Here's what we're learned about the challenges and uses of satellite-based services in this sector.

Why make it simple when you can make it complicated (about end-user needs) 25 March, 2016 | | tags: Why make it simple when you can make it complicated  (about end-user needs)© apinan

"[…] more effort should be carried out, on the ground, to talk to end-users and get new ideas from them.
The fact that we can do that, in Europe, is perhaps our biggest competitive advantage in the face of much decried (by some) American competition, of the likes of Google and the rest. We – both public and private providers – can create European value-added services because we can talk to the end-users on the ground. We can find out what they need. And they need stuff. So we can insist on going beyond research, to create highly personalised solutions that rely both on Europe’s impressive satellite infrastructure and on field knowledge."

EO uptake: the Holy Grail? 27 March, 2015 | | tags: EO, users uptake EO uptake: the Holy Grail?Dr. Ian Thomas: reviewing ice typing in Antarctica

We’ve interviewed Dr Ian Thomas for some tips to advance EO Uptake based on his three-decade plus career as an Earth Observation (EO) specialist and supporter to end-users. This has been within various local, central and pan-government programmes in the United Kingdom, Western Europe, SE Asia, USA, Australia, Antarctica and New Zealand.
