ESA EO Φ-week - Abstract submission deadline extended
10 April 2018
The European Space Agency (ESA) is organising a Φ-week event at ESRIN in Frascati, Italy from 22 to 26 October 2018. The event will focus on EO Open Science and FutureEO - to review the latest developments in Open Science trends and kick-start innovative activities of the recently created Φ-department. This new department is looking at FutureEO, and its associated Φ-lab aims to identify, support and scale bold EO ideas.
Please note that the abstract submission deadline has been extended to 01 May 2018, providing you with additional time to submit your paper.
The Φ-week will include a variety of events (e.g. inspiring talks, workshops, roundtables, startup pitch, hackathons) to connect multi-disciplinary communities - from EO researchers, data scientists, non-space corporates, tech leaders, entrepreneurs, up to startup and innovators - to (i) explore together how EO Open Science and innovation can benefit from the latest digital technologies and (ii) help shape FutureEO missions and services.
