Eurisy, a non-profit association of space agencies based in Paris, is mandated to promote peaceful uses of satellite applications (satellite imagery, navigation and communication) to enhance economic growth and social well-being.
Since 2018, Eurisy launched the Space for Cities initiative, aimed at disseminating and promoting uses of satellite applications to enhance cities’ efficiency and sustainability.
The European Space Agency (ESA) is Europe’s gateway to space. Its mission is to shape the development of Europe’s space capability and ensure that investment in space continues to deliver benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world. To foster synergies among the space and energy sectors, the European Space Agency (ESA) has launched the “Space and Energy initiative”.
The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) is an EU advisory body composed of locally and regionally elected representatives coming from all 28 Member States. Through the CoR they are able to share their opinion on EU legislation that directly impact regions and cities.
