EOmag Editorial Spring 2015

I noticed that ESA has recently published an interesting call for commercial partners in space exploration. Calling new partners for exploring the moon and Mars. The announcement was for a call for ideas to assess how companies could join forces with ESA in novel partnerships. I welcome this approach by ESA and look forward to developing similar ideas for the EO services domain. This will mean taking some difficult decisions but together we can all benefit.
In this respect, we recently participated with Eurospace to co-organise a workshop addressing priorities in future calls for the space part of the H2020 programme. For those unaware, H2020 is the research programme of the European Union replacing the Framework programme as it was previously known. Calls are issued approximately once per year under different thematic priorities which define the research activities which shall be undertaken.
