NextGEOSS Public Release 1.0 is Live

The EO sector is moving fast but is characterized by a strong fragmentation. From all parts, from the research, the private sector, entities are scattered even if they are involved in the same thematic or market, even if they use the same input data, even they face similar processing capabilities issues. Defragmentation is needed. Such as the eoMALL (https://eomall.eu, currently in beta version) dedicated to the promotion of EO online services, linking Service Providers and customers, NextGEOSS aims to facilitate the access and the processing of data to EO users. This is why EARSC is involved, with 6 other EARSC members (Vito, Terradue, Euroconsult, CLS, Deimos Space, Deimos Imaging) in this H2020 project lead by DEIMOS Elecnor.

EO Quality Assurance Workshop


Quality Assurance (QA) is the concern of all actors in the EO value chain from the Data acquisition to the end-user. It is a component of the value of any EO services or products. Companies are looking at solutions to smooth their process, to integrate various sources of data, to increase sales. Is current QA performance enough? How could we improve the QA? How could we use QA to increase the uptake of EO, improve the value of services and products?
Starting with the view of EO private or public customers from verticals (Oil& Gas, Agro-Insurance, Assurance, Environment), the workshop will explore the different approaches of QA, opportunities or improvement and a road map for implementation.

For all of these reasons, ESA is organizing a workshop around Quality Assurance at the ESRIN, April 9 & 10 2019.

The New EU Space Programme Regulation Proposal and the future of the EO Downstream Services Sector

Brussels, October 2018

The European EO Services industry welcomes the proposal for an EU Space Programme and looks forward to making a strong contribution to its’ success. Copernicus remains an extremely important programme for Europe and for our sector. It has demonstrated how to deliver critical information to European policy makers whilst enabling the services industry to develop business in new markets so delivering more highly-skilled jobs in Europe.

The industry already plays a key role in the delivery of the Copernicus Services, but we consider that a great deal more is possible; the proposed programme lays out a number of key measures which can help. Industry has invested strongly in the development of new products and services, many based on the Free and Open data from Copernicus and is ready to invest further. We believe that a partnership between industry and government will enable the best returns for all parties. In this paper we set out our views on a number of the factors which can help deliver these increased benefits for Europe and its policy makers.
