EURISY

Description

Eurisy is a nonprofit association of space agencies, mandated to communicate on concrete uses of satellite applications that can benefit society. To fulfil its scope, Eurisy stimulates dialogue and collaboration between public institutions at any level, SMEs, industry and academia from the space and non-space sectors. The goal is to build solid relations with communities new to space, to encourage innovative uses of satellite applications to respond to today’s challenges and to share experiences among professionals from different backgrounds. The association was created in 1989 under French law, at the initiative of Hubert Curien, former ESA Council Chair and French Minister of Education. Eurisy is mandated by its members to act as a facilitator to fully exploit the synergies to bridge space and society. For over three decades, Eurisy has worked to put civil society at the core of the space value chain. Within this edition of EXPANDEO, Eurisy facilitates the participation of ms Anna Maria D’Onghia from the CIHEAM Bari, to talk about the potential of Earth observation to monitor plants' health. Current focus areas are: Sustainable cities, Maritime, Sports, Culture, Rural, and Health.
