ICT & Space – Advantages of Satellite Data – Morning Event in Oulu, May 5th 2017

Welcome to the morning event at Oulu Auditorium Smarthouse on Friday 5 May, 2017 at 8-10.

 The event presents how the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Integrated Applications Promotion (IAP) programme can support and contribute to the development of services to meet these challenges. Furthermore, two companies will provide their views and solutions utilizing space data.

The evolution towards more effective and innovative solutions, products and services, implies many new challenges and problems. Not all of them can be met with the methods and tools currently in place. A glance at other industry and technology sectors, including even space technologies, can help to meet these challenges.

Satellite navigation is commonly used nowadays in several devices – cars, bikes, tracking devices, by pedestrians, etc. The added value of integrated services and applications based on space technologies like navigation, satellite communication, earth observation or technologies of other space sectors may not be obvious at first glance and hence possibly not even taken into consideration.

The language of the event will be in Finnish, and the presentation materials in English.

The participation is free of charge.
