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.
Events organised by Eurisy and/or those we contribute to.
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.
The bianniel Hubert Curien Award recognises outstanding efforts to help society benefit from space. Since its inception in 2004, the bianniel Hubert Curien Award recognises outstanding efforts to help society benefit from space. Eurisy confers in 2020 the 9th edition of the Hubert Curien Award.
EXPANDEO is the Annual Conference of the European Association of Remote Sensing Companies - EARSC. European earth observation companies get the chance to learn about different market opportunities in different sectors while growing their business through networking and other interactive sessions. This year, EXPANDEO is focusing on Climate Change. On the 18th of June, Eurisy and Euphresco will contribute to the conference by presenting their joint policy brief Fostering the use of satellite Remote Sensing to support Plant Health surveillance activities.
The European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO) and Eurisy, with the support of the European Space Agency, organise this session within the conference "Protecting Plant Health in a changing world”. Hosted by the government of Finland between 5-8 October 2020, the Conference will be one of the key events of the UN International Year of Plant Health.
The session will gather experts in the use of remote sensing from different regions to discuss global scientific, technical and regulatory plant health matters. Partcipants will receive a copy of the policy brief "Fostering the use of satellite Remote Sensing to support Plant Health surveillance activities" jointry produced by Eurisy and Euphresco.
