Monitoring the Earth: the key contribution of Industry

Earth Observation is at a turning point world wide. The awareness of the risks inherent to an uncontrolled development of human activities has led to environmental protocols and to the setup of new partnership, such as Global Environment Outlook Support System (GEOSS), to develop synergies between available capabilities internationally. The recent catastrophic events resulting from the Indian Ocean tsunami as well as the more regular environmental crises worldwide, due in particular to El Nino and Global Warming to name just a few, have reinforced this awareness and require the quick definition and development of a proper international framework for crisis warning and management.

INSPIRE Group looking for experts

The INSPIRE Group are looking for experts in various fields. This is anunique opportunity for EARSC to utilise its network.

EARSC Scope and Membership Procedure

EARSC vision

The private sector is making a great effort to establish an Integrated Earth Observation system. EARSC main objective is to strengthen and to articulate Earth¬?s monitoring activities and to foster the role of Industry in this European effort and for those new challenges.

Terms of Reference: Working Group on Space Policy


EARSC strategy is to understand the mechanisms of co-operation on Earth Observation policies between the European Space Agency, the Commission and Companies in Europe. Stronger cooperation mechanisms between all actors at the space applications chain are necessary to fully progress on the European Space Policy. One of the objectives of EARSC is to build a bridge to better communicate the industry voice to decision makers, providers and final users.

Ten-Year GEOSS Action Plan


EARSC Communication

EARSC Communication
The Directors and Secretariat of EARSC recognise the importance offorthright communication between all Members. In order to prosper and achieve growth through the new Strategy of gathering Earth observation European industry, a procedure of dynamic communication and networking is being developed.

Earth Observation Summit Confirms The Establishment Of The GEO Secretariat

 Following the Third Earth Observation Summit hosted by the European Commission in Brussels on 16 February 2005, the Secretariat of the intergovernmental Group on Earth Observations (GEO) will be hosted by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in Geneva. The GEO Secretariat will oversee the fulfilment of a 10-year implementation plan approved by the Summit to create a Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS). WMO will also be the venue for the initial meeting of the GEO on 2- 4 May 2005.

31st International Symposium on Remote Sensing of Environment


June 20 - 24, 2005, Saint Petersburg, Russian Federation

We are pleased to invite you to the 31st International Symposium on Remote Sensing of Environment. The overall theme is the use of Earth observation systems in monitoring, understanding and managing our planet's environment with particular emphasis on global change, security and sustainability. The Symposium will include oral and poster sessions on vital issues of interest to research and educational institutions, governmental agencies, commercial companies as well as resource managers, decision-makers in public and private sectors and scientists involved in remote sensing research and applications.
