Call for media

03 September 2019

Media are invited to ESA's Earth observation centre in Italy for the second ɸ-week, which brings together different communities to explore how space can encompass emerging digital technologies.

Although Earth observation (EO) is a clear focus, the Φ-week takes a wider angle to encompass other space technologies and innovative ICT solutions. The event includes inspiring talks, workshops, roundtables, a startup ‘bootcamp', side events and ‘hackathons' in order to explore how new tech is shaping the future of EO and space.

The event connects multidisciplinary communities helping them to :

  • gain insight into the latest trends in EO Open Science, New Space, and the impact of new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI);
  • connect and network with the new ecosystem of space including scientists, innovators, corporate leaders, startups and investors;
  • discover the latest trends in tech and space from keynote speakers;
  • learn about a wide range of topics, ranging from Open EO Science to AI, blockchain, AR/VR, additive manufacturing and their applications across industries,
  • innovate by bringing your idea to the discussion regarding the future evolution of EO.

The full programme and a list of speakers are available at Earth Observation Φ-Week
