Satellites Going Local 2014 – Digital Society Edition

The 2014 edition of Eurisy’s “Satellites going local” publication collects operational examples in which satellite information and services have been used to provide new products and applications in the fields of media, education, arts and culture, leisure, tourism, marketing and sustainable urban development.

Its main objective is to raise awareness of how public authorities and SMEs can use satellite applications to improve their services and engage people. Moreover, the publication is also intended to promote the “Digital Agenda for Europe”, the first of the seven Europe 2020 flagship initiatives, which aims to support citizens and businesses in getting the most out of digital technologies.
