Earth Observation Applications Business Breakfast

Governments have a concrete question, to which companies formulate an answer in the form of an idea for an application. The most promising ideas receive a subsidy to develop a working prototype of this application.

Zooming in on ‘Masterclasses’ and ‘Tenderdesk: with opportunities for building international consortia for European projects’. Groundstation Dotspace is an initiative at the NL Space Campus in Noordwijk and is cofinanced by the province of Zuid-Holland. At dotSPACE they have experience in setting up innovation projects in an international environment and have built up a European network of technology sectors over the years. This network consists of companies, knowledge institutions, universities and national and European funding parties and supports potential end-users of satellite applications by leveraging its network to make experience and expertise available.

The event will be moderated by Holger W. Oelze, CEO AVIASPACE BREMEN e.V.
