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

Moving from society’s awareness of space to space’s awareness of society: UNISPACE +50 and the Space Generation Forum 2.0 7 September, 2018 | Author: @Eurisy | | tags: Moving from society’s awareness of space to space’s awareness of society: UNISPACE +50 and the Space Generation Forum 2.0

In June Eurisy team spent a full, intense and enriching week in Vienna where we attended two anniversaries: the Space Generation Forum 2.0 organised by the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) and the UNISPACE+50 Conference organised by the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA). Here is what we learned and our impressions of the two events.

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.

Disrupt with space! 31 March, 2017 | | tags: Disrupt with space!

When it comes to space -- and specifically, to the downstream sector -- can service providers using satellite data be just as agile and user-centric? Space is slow, it is generally assumed. That may be a limiting factor. But we argue that it is not. To the contrary, we believe satellite data-based services can be just as user-centric as any other digital services.

The App Trap...and how to avoid it 1 July, 2016 | Author: @Eurisy | | tags: The App Trap...and how to avoid it@Eurisy

Most of us remember the first Snake game Nokia had put on their phone in the nineties. We have come a long way. Nowadays there’s an app for everything and our smartphones are bustling with new tech solutions. From mobile apps crowdsourcing data for disaster management, to apps that send flu alerts, to traffic congestion management, there is no shortage of ideas. The app can be easily built and tested. But what's next?

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."
