The new digital space economy is an internationally growing field of research and development. The possibilities offered by large quantities of data collected from satellites bring interesting new opportunities for the private sector (opportunity to develop new knowledge and products/services based on satellite data that strengthens industry’s competitiveness) and the public sector.

This Learning Café consists of a webinar and a virtual workshop. In the webinar, experts talk about the potential of space based data in business and the related funding opportunities, and case companies introduce their own ways to leverage space data in forestry and agriculture, logistics and positioning, maintenance, and geoinformatics. In the workshop, we will be divided into groups by sector-of-interest and brainstorm together how space based data can be useful for business in that field, including current and potential future solutions.

Do you already have ideas you want to develop, or are you interested in hearing what space can bring to your business? Either way, come along!
