Global Space Markets Challenge

The Global Space Markets Challenge is a new competition launched by ESA with the operational and technical support of EURISY.
The Challenge's objective is to select the six SMEs in the space sector which submit the most promising and convincing internationalisation plans.
In the context of the increasingly important role played by SMEs, in particular in the European space sector, ESA is striving to encourage and support the growth of these companies so that they have increased chances to have access to finance, information, and contacts, and, more generally, to promote their capabilities and know-how, in Europe and abroad.

With the ESA Global Space Markets Challenge, SMEs now have a novel opportunity to present their plans to introduce their space products and/or services to identified target markets and, for the winners, to benefit from awards and support that help them reach these markets.

GIS4Schools Project

The GIS4Schools Project will have a positive impact on the European school education system by developing a scalable and reusable training package focused on the use of GIS in climate action, which is currently absent or rarely adopted. Direct beneficiaries of the project will be secondary school pupils. Young students will be empowered to develop business ideas using their potential for entrepreneurship contributing to the high growth potential of the Space Economy.

Working with satellite data allows students, with multiple backgrounds and professional goals, to solve real-world issues. The aim of the GIS4Schools Project is threefold: support opportunities for all in acquiring and developing STEAM competences; address innovative practices in a digital era; contribute to environmental and climate goals. Eurisy fulfils a leading role in the communication and dissemination segment of this project, by conveying innovative practices on the basis of space technology to students, teachers, and other enthusiasts of this project.

EuroGEOSS Showcases: e-shape

Eurisy has lent its expertise to the dissemination of the Horizon2020 funded project: e-shape. This unique initiative brings together decades of public investment in Earth Observation into services for decision-makers, citizens, industry and researchers. It allows Europe to position itself as global force in Earth observation through leveraging Copernicus.

Driven by the need to develop operational EO services with and for the users, e-shape aims to create a conducive environment whereby the strengths of Europe are exploited towards addressing societal challenges, fostering entrepreneurship and supporting sustainable development. Coordinated by ARMINES, Eurisy is participating in a consortium funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme, to improve user uptake of Earth Observation data in the European region.

This Initiative is a continuation and extension of the work of the GEO CRADLE Community Activity, which provided Earth observation capacity building in the North Africa, Middle East, and Balkans (NAMEBA) region.

Eurisy assumed the role of Coordinator of the work package WP240 User Need Analysis and contributes transversally to other work packages of GEO-CRADLE, in particular WP620 Communication, dissemination and stakeholder involvement methodology.
