For GeoVille it is important to be a Member of EARSC, because EARSC is the only organisation promoting the interest of the European EO industry and underpinning its market position vis a vis non-European players and the increasing market distorting competition from European public institutions.
For me EARSC is the Association that helps growing and professionalising the whole EO community including my own companies.
The benefits for me are at least threefold: 1) EARSC as lobby organisation. EARSC represents the European value-added EO industry and is today well recognized by major stakeholders as ESA and EC. 2) EARSC as information provider. As member I am informed of the intentions, moves and changes ongoing within crucial stakeholders as ESA and EC and 3) EARSC as networkplatform for its members.
