EUSPA / EBN webinar: Space Technologies for Fintech and Insurtech
Data from satellites have become an important source of information unlocking new business opportunities and enabling non-existing use cases. EBN together with the European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) organises a series of webinars showcasing how space data is enriching industries already today. During the webinars, the EUSPA will introduce the EU Space programmes and activities for entrepreneurs and startups, deep dive into how space data can enrich different sectors and examples of existing projects.
The 6th webinar of our series focuses on Space Technologies for FinTech.
The Earth Observation data and services for the insurance and finance market segment will see an annual growth rate of 20% in the next decade, resulting in almost €1 bn in total revenues. Today Earth Observation (EO) is increasingly used to compute indices for parametric products, particularly for crops and livestock insurance and also for calibration of risk models and assessment of damage supporting both the insurance and finance stakeholders in claim management. In finance, EO will further increase its position in the production of indices for commodities trading supporting the development of logistics strategies for organizations that exploit natural resources. Not only does EO plays a central role but also GNSS by enabling timestamping of transactions in financial applications as well as in claim assessment.
In this webinar, participants will learn how Earth Observation data when combined with in situ data and advanced methods and technologies such as high-performance computing and machine learning can be a very efficient tool supporting the digitalization of the financial sector. The focus will be put on innovative solutions and applications, which are based on free Copernicus Earth Observation data and information service.
