EARSC (Virtual) EOcafe: The European Earth Observation Industry in the time of CoVid!

The Coronavirus pandemic is impacting the European Earth Observation like any other industrial sector and this unique economic depression creates an unclear future. EARSC has been following closely the impact of CoVid on EARSC members to better understand their needs and find ways to support them in the future!

Would you like to know how the European Earth Observation industry is doing and share your views on the future? Join us on May 14, 2020 at 16:00-16:30 (CET), to listen from three EARSC members of different countries and size how they are managing with the emergency.

In this EOcafe we will address these questions:

• How the daily activities have been impacted by COVID?
• Have you taken any special measures to deal with the confinement?
• Have you seen any impact on the revenues and customers?
• Do you think any measures need to be taken to avoid future problems?

Our host, Geoff Sawyer, EARSC’s Secretary General will exchange with our three special guests:

Pierre-Alain Bosc, EARSC Director and Head of Sales France, International and European institutions, Midle East, Africa, Central Asia, Intelligence, AIRBUS Defence and Space
Maciej Krzyżanowski, EARSC Director and CEO at CloudFerro
Lucy kennedy, EARSC Member and CEO at Spottitt
