The European Commission and the European GNSS Agency (GSA) welcome you to the European Space Solutions, which is being held in Prague from 11 to 13 June. The 3-day conference will bring together business and the public-sector with users and developers of space-based solutions.

Participants will learn about the potential for using space technologies from the European Space Programmes Galileo/EGNOS (navigation) and Copernicus (Earth observation) in their fields of work, gather insights about current developments, and discuss what is possible and needed in the future. Space-based services and technologies are the future of efficient, effective and sustainable services that society needs.

The conference will open with a high-level Plenary Session focused on harnessing space-powered solutions for the benefit of business and society in general.
Entitled ‘New Tools for Businesses and Society Across the Globe’, the session will provide an update on the various EU space programmes and discuss the topics of space for society and space for business.

The session will be followed by an International Business Roundtable where global business leaders will discuss how they are leveraging space applications within their operations.

Four user-led seminars are scheduled for the 12th and 13th.
These sessions will explore how the EU’s navigation and Earth observation programmes can deliver innovative solutions to real life challenges.
For example, in the session on sustainable transport, attendees will discover how space applications can increase efficiency, safety and sustainability in the fields of aviation, maritime, rail and road.

The landscape and ecosystems seminar will focus on the wide-range of information and services space applications can provide for sustainable agriculture and spatial planning.

Similar sessions on emergency response and consumer applications are also scheduled.
