Improving EO services industry involvement in EU space programmes and initiatives - 26 April 2017

EARSC, in coordination with DG GROW and DG RTD, is organising a full day-event on April 26 to discuss concrete ways for the improved industry involvement in the exploitation of Copernicus Services and the delivery of GEO vision.

The morning session will underline the key priorities of GEO with regards to industry engagement and, through the example of GEO-CRADLE, will provide a concrete account of tools that can help EU industry develop business in the Balkans, North Africa and Middle East.

In the afternoon, a lively discussion between representatives of the European Entrusted Entities and EU companies will take place, with the aim to establish a common roadmap for the improved exploitation of Copernicus Services by EU industry.
