Satellite-based applications in the maritime domain: hands-on the e-shape project

The workshop is an e-shape labelled event, the European Commission’s Horizon2020 flagship project supporting the EuroGEO initiative demonstrating European EO capabilities  applied to 7 showcases, including water co developed with and for the users. The project’s ultimate goals is to foster entrepreneurship and develop research to business activities.

The first part of the workshop will introduce the audience to operational satellite-based applications providing  a market and users' benefits perspective in  maritime spatial planning. The second part is dedicated to the presentation of pilots projects, involved in a co-design process with users, industry and policy makers to deliver sustainable EO solutions and to maximise the value for users. The presenters will provide hands-on training and users’ benefit on two applications, “Sargassum detection for seasonal planning” and “Monitoring fishing activities”, providing a link to most of the different European Directives and Policies and the SDGs.

The format foresees a Q&A and the end of the first part of the workshop and a discussion/Q&A at the end of the pilot’s presentation to boost interaction and live engagement between the audience and the pilots through feedback useful to inject in the co-design methodology of the service development.
