EUSPA / EBN webinar: Space Technologies for Sustainability and Green Transformation
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 Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) organises a series of webinars showcasing how space data enriches industries already today. During the webinars, the EUSPA will introduce the EU Space programmes and activities for entrepreneurs and start-ups, deep dive into how space data can enrich different sectors and examples of existing projects.
The final webinar of our series focuses on Space Technologies for Sustainability and Green Transformation and the benefits that EU Space Programmes bring to them.
Climate change is the most urgent challenge we have been facing – affecting everyone everywhere on the Earth. Earth observation represents nowadays key technology to identify and monitor climate change and to support mitigation and adaptation measures. Space data has a tremendous potential to help us achieve a better understanding of Earth processes through timely modelling, forecasting, and monitoring. Moreover, space data and technologies also offer sustainable and commercial solutions for a decarbonised and green economy transition.
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 support the green transition defined by the Green Deal, which aims to make Europe carbon neutral by 2050, alongside an effort for digitization transformation. The focus will be put on innovative solutions and applications, which are based on free Copernicus Earth Observation data and information service.

About the expert
Veronika Strnadová is Remote Sensing Scientist & Consultant at EUSPA. She has obtained her PhD. Degree in Geography and Remote sensing at Charles University in Prague. She has long-term international experience. She was representing the EuroGeoSurveys (EGS) for Earth Observation and GEO activities for four years and was a visiting scientist at the Helmholtz Zentrum (GFZ), Potsdam. In 2018 she was appointed as an Earth Observation mentor for the ESA/NASA summer program – FDL Europe 2018. Since Copernicus data were made available, she has been working on developing new applications that use these free data in synergy (e.g. Sentinel-1 and 2 data). Currently, she has been working as a senior Copernicus consultant in EUSPA.
The European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) provides safe and secure European satellite navigation services, promotes the commercialization of Galileo, EGNOS, and Copernicus data and services and coordinates the EU’s forthcoming governmental satellite communications programme GOVSATCOM. EUSPA is responsible for the security accreditation of all the EU Space Programme components. By fostering the development of an innovative and competitive space sector and engaging with the entire EU Space community, EUSPA contributes to the European Green Deal and digital transition, the safety and security of the Union and its citizens, while reinforcing its autonomy and resilience.
