Satellite Solutions for Smarter Islands

November 12, 2015

|Recurring Event (See all)

Islands can prove to be real labs for ICT-driven innovation. They are small and flexible. This means they can test ideas fast and implement only the best of them. Islands are confronted with specific needs – whether due to their remoteness, their vulnerability to climate change, or the scarcity of their resources. Such challenges call for creative solutions.

Big data, connectivity and location technologies – including those based on satellites – are some of the building blocks of such a digital economy.

This conference will discuss how island economies can leverage Europe’s investments in satellite services to boost their economy and live up to current environmental and socio-economic challenges.
