Workshop – EO industry sector involvement in EuroGEO

The EuroGEO Secretariat (EuroGEOSec) project is a Horizon Europe support action aiming to prepare the transition of the EuroGEO initiative into a sustainable endeavour. The EuroGEO Secretariat will coordinate the EuroGEO Ecosystem, to combine European R&I and industry bussiness activities within the GEO activities and to cooperate with all the actors of the EO sector, supporting the EuroGEO initiative in delivering operational capabilities.

A recent survey carried out in this framework, showed a 30% response rate coming from the industry and private sector, thus proving to be a major stakeholder in the EuroGEO landscape. The active involvement of the private sector in EuroGEO, showcasing its capabilities and services, makes EuroGEO unique and is a true strength. Hence, the private sector and the industry are key for the uptake of EuroGEO solutions and for promoting business models.

In this context, EARSC is supporting the building of the future EuroGEO community, coordinating the liaison with the EO industry. This meeting aims to:

  1. Present the key aspects of the EuroGEOSec project
  2. Present and discuss the results of the EuroGEO Survey to foresee the engagement and involvement of the industry more broadly across EuroGEO projects and initiatives especially:
    • Industry involvement in EuroGEO through Action Groups and thematic workshops under EuroGEOSec (content level)
