The sector mover

Copernicus Data Space Ecosystem is a new initiative of the European Space Agency and the European Commission that revolutionizes the world of EO data processing and distribution. The project is being implemented by a consortium that includes T-Systems as a leader, CloudFerro, Sinergise, VITO, DLR, ACRI-ST, and RHEA. The new ecosystem will include one of the largest public EO data repositories in the world which is estimated to grow to 85 petabytes of EO data, and the CREODIAS platform, which is the first commercial element of the ecosystem, providing cloud services for EO data processing. The new service will certainly provide new opportunities for service providers, and create a long-term impact on European science, economy, and society. As a contributor to this important initiative, we are happy to be a Sector Mover Partner of the EXPANDEO event.

The Awards partner

EarthDaily Agro is a Data and Analytics company developing world-first technologies in data services, satellite processing, and machine learning. The insights they provide allow customers in multiple industries to track long-term trends, monitor change, and take guided, strategic actions to better serve their customers and fulfill their missions.

The community supporters

The GREAT project, funded by the Digital Europe program, aims to establish the Green Deal Data Space Foundation and its Community of Practice which builds on both the European Green Deal and the EU’s Strategy for Data. The project will deliver a roadmap for implementing and deploying the Green Deal Data Space, an infrastructure that will allow data providers and initiatives to openly share their data to tackle climate change in a multidisciplinary manner.

PROTECT project supports urgent action for climate change adaptation and mitigation. It aims at enabling public authorities to use state-of-the-art innovation procurement approaches to identify solutions – climate services using Environmental Observation data – that best fit the specific and systemic needs of the public demand. PROTECT’s objective is to create and engage with an extensive and varied community of public and private buyers and practitioners from environmental transitional/ climate change adaptation services from national, local and regional public authorities to facilitate the definition and aggregation of their needs and functional requirements for climate services, explaining, fostering and supporting a ‘buying with green impact’ approach. At policy level, PROTECT will provide decision-makers of public procurement, climate adaptation and mitigation, and Earth Observation policies at EU, national, regional, and local levels, with practical recommendations and guidelines to boost the use of innovation procurement for climate action.

PROTECT will prepare the operational ground for undertaking one or more joint, cross border or coordinated pre-commercial procurement (PCP) processes in the frame of the following Horizon Europe PCP call fully funded by the European Commission and to be launched in the first quarter of 2024: HORIZON-CL6-2024-GOVERNANCE-01-5: Customisation/pre-operationalisation of prototypes end-user services in the area Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation For more information, visit the project’s website: http://protect-pcp.eu/ and  follow PROTECT social media on Twitter: https://twitter.com/EU_PROTECT and LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/eu-protect/

HARMONIA project aims to provide a resilience assessment platform to help urban stakeholders understand and quantify Climate Change effects. Based on satellite and auxiliary data, the HARMONIA platform will offer a user-friendly knowledge base, dispensing detailed information on a local neighborhood and street level. This will support local decision-making and foster a wide range of applications dedicated to climate adaptation and mitigation, such as Carbon Capture and Storage technologies

the networkers

European Space Imaging (EUSI) has led the earth observation sector in Europe for more than 20 years, providing the best Very High Resolution (VHR) satellite imagery commercially available.

The first to bring 30 cm resolution satellite imagery to the European market, EUSI is firmly established as the most trusted source for efficient collection and Near Real-Time (NRT) delivery of high-quality satellite imagery products. Through their ground station at the German Aerospace Center, EUSI continues to directly access the most advanced optical imagery satellites in the world and propel Europe into the next age of remote sensing technologies.


In today’s world information is everything. But it can be a challenge to come by the right information, at the right time, in the right format.

Institutional Partner

BELSPO is the Belgium Science Policy office. Within BELSPO the “Space Research and Applications” department manages the Belgian contributions to the international space programmes in the framework of the European Space Agency (ESA) and of other intergovernmental organisations (EUMETSAT, ECMWF, ESO…), as well as in the framework of bilateral agreements. In this context, it is also in charge of the follow-up of the space activities and programmes of the European Union. Finally, the Department manages specific national R&D programmes mainly in the domain of Earth Observation. This department can be considered as the Belgium Space office.


We extend our heartfelt thanks to our partners for their invaluable contribution and look forward to working together towards a successful and impactful event.
