The EARSC annual cocktail was held in the Museum of Natural Sciences of Brussels. Standing between the exoskeletons of long extinct creatures we were happy to celebrate our ‘not so old in comparison’ 30 years anniversary. The highlight of our 2019 anniversary cocktail was the award ceremony that was sponsored this year by Planet Labs Germany. This year we increased the number of awards from 2 to 5, the first added award was the unannounced EARSC member start-up award In a previous blog of Geoff we already highlighted the importance of young SMEs in the creation of new jobs, and we therefor reasoned to spotlight one exemplary start-up with this new award. The second new award stems from the industry survey where we randomly drew one of the respondents and award them with a €250 euro check donation to their charity of choice. The last new award is the Partnership award which was given out in cooperation with CopHub.AC. This award recognised a partnership between a public institution and a private company.
On the 20th and 21st of June EARSC held the first edition of our annual EXPANDEO event, bringing together the Earth Observation market. In total, the event saw 160 attendees that either work in the EO industry, are institutional stakeholders or others who are affiliated with the Earth Observation Sector. This year was a special edition for EARSC since we also celebrated our 30 years anniversary! We also and had an extra 3 (total of 5) awards to present during our annual cocktail event!
