The European Commission appreciates the collaboration with EARSC, as an honest broker to link with the private sector, in particular SMEs. These companies play a crucial role as EO-based service purveyors, technology developers, and the commercialization of innovations. The dialogue with EARSC helps us achieve the ambitious EU policy goals and bring EO to end-users in order for them to be able to fully profit from the EU investments into Earth observation.
