The aim of the #V4Conference2021 is to bring together a wide range of actors involved in research & innovation in the field of Earth Observations (EOs) with a particular focus on Visegrad Group. In brief, the event shall provide a framework to review a key role of research and innovation for the Copernicus programme.
Participants will have a chance to hear a keynote lecture delivered by Mr Matthias Pertschke (Director – Space, DG DEFIS, European Commission). In order to put a spotlight on the CEE space sector, a special session will feature success stories of V4-based projects linked to developing, deploying and using global space-based infrastructures as well as Copernicus applications and data. These will exemplify the key contributions of the V4-based sector to the European Green Deal and Space Strategy for Europe. Finally, a roundtable discussion with key European EO actors and stakeholders (e.g. ESA, ESRE, SME4Space) will take place to address the current status and future challenges regarding the R&I activities for and within Copernicus programme. Closing remarks will be provided by Mr Philippe Tulkens (Head of Unit – Climate & Planetary Boundaries, DG RTD, European Commission).
The event shall also serve as an opportunity for networking, mobilising and reinforcing cooperation between European scientists & innovators, research organisations & industry sector as well as various actors in the field of satellite Earth Observations.
