The conference "Space for a Safe and Secure Society, supporting Sustainable Growth" is organized by the European Commission, in collaboration with the Romanian Space Agency, European Space Agency and Eurisy, under the auspices of the Romanian Presidency of the EU Council and the Romanian Ministry for Research and Innovation. On the occassion Eurisy will be organising a session on " Satellite applications for safe and resilient cities" to exchange on how satellite-based applications improve can urban spaces on June 5th. The session will be followed by Eurisy's 2019 General Assembly.
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.

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation's (OSGeo) flagship event, FOSS4G will take place in Bucharest, Romania this year under the overarching theme of DATA driven development. The event will gather together the global geospatial community from senior or junior professionals, students and professors to exchange on free and open source software for geospatial storage, processing and visualization and provide participants with a common forum and shared infrastructure for improving cross-project collaboration.
OSGeo is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to foster global adoption of open geospatial technology by being an inclusive software foundation devoted to an open philosophy and participatory community driven development.
