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.

It is important to be part of EARSC as it the network of companies recognised by EU and ESA as “the” voice of the European companies involved in Earth Observation exploitation expressing the industry position in relation to European policies and programmes. EARSC Initiatives for promoting adoption of Earth observation in specific market segments such as oil& gas companies and transportation are of great value for better understanding real user needs and their operational workflows where we intend to bring our products and services. EARSC action is also very important in supporting our industry in relation to the role of National, European and International Institutions active in Earth Observation.

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.
