In Europe, we have two major space based programs, Galileo and Copernicus. Combining the navigation or positioning tools of Galileo and the Earth observation data and services of Copernicus for improved food security and agriculture in general is what we address in this webinar.
Hence, it is obvious that there is a great untapped potential in combining positioning data from Galileo and EGNOS with Earth observation data for agriculture. Additionally, the Covid19 virus is unfortunately not only harming our health, it is also jeopardizing our food security. It is evident that we need to pump up our efforts to combine all the resources and knowledge we have to secure a continued good life, not only for Europeans, but for our entire planet.
Students, researchers, data analytics, participants in European, national and international projects, developers, service and application developers will learn more about Galileo, EGNOS and Earth Observation (Copernicus programme) with our speakers:
- María-Eva Ramírez works at INECO as GNSS Expert, working as part of SpaceOpal Team at the GSC (European GNSS Service Center) for Galileo Adoption and Market Development, focused mainly on EGNSS Applications on Agriculture and Geomatics domain.
- Sofía Cilla, works as Service Adoption Manager with the goal of promoting EGNOS usage in the different GNSS user communities (eg. aviation, rail, maritime, agriculture and geomatics) today and those that may come in the future.
- Joaquin REYES GONZÁLEZ is Market Development Technology Officer at GSA working in the professional high-precision market on EGNOS and Galileo, focused on Agriculture topics.
- David Kolitzus is a Senior Expert and Project Manager with an IT and a remote sensing expertise at GeoVille.
- Bente Lilja Bye has been a member of the GEO community since 2004, engaged both as representative in the GEO plenary, in committees and contributing to the GEO Work Programme, and currently represents Norway on the GEO Programme Board. Bente runs a small research and consultancy company, BLB, focusing on transforming Earth observation data to information and knowledge for societal benefit.
