Earth & Space Week, Brussels 2005

The European Association of Remote Sensing Companies, EARSC and the Association of the European Space Industry EUROSPACE are engaged in developing new strategies and new concepts of operation
to meet an entirely different set of challenges for these exciting
times of intensified European interaction and cooperation. One of these challenges is to be one of the focal points of Earth Observation in Europe both for Industry or Institutional Bodies and also for our involvement at the biggest joint ESA and EU initiative which is the Earth & Space Week linking governments, industry and users. The event is to be held in Brussels during nine days from 12th-20th February 2005 where it will highlight the essential role of space in our daily life.
