World Space Alliance kicks off
20 May 2019
While scientists and data users continue to discuss the latest findings about our changing world and the space technologies that are needed to learn more, this week's Living Planet Symposium has also been the forum to forge and strengthen alliances. And, today sees the start of a two-year pilot for the ESA–SAP World Space Alliance.
Data from satellites are essential for understanding and monitoring our environment, and increasingly important for daily applications. While the wealth of data we have today also opens up huge opportunities for business, it needs to be made more convenient and turned into actual products that are useful for commerce.
