Satellite communications are critical for implementing European policies, and will become even more so in the future.
Satellites contribute to the daily life of all European citizens in areas such as media, telecoms, climate monitoring, transport, weather forecasts, safety and security. A society without satellites is already unsustainable, and our reliance on them in the future can only increase. Satellites are also an essential asset for European diplomacy and international influence. Within this framework, the Integral SatCom Initiative (ISI) European technology platform hopes to bring together satellite and non-satellite actors to present their vision on the creation of strategic R&D initiatives aimed at supporting the implementation of European policies, such as Europe’s digital agenda, next-generation access networks, and broadband high-speed internet.
