Earth Observation solutions for smart cities, urban planning & maritime: Hands-on e-shape pilots

On the 17th of May 2022 (15:00 – 17:00 CET) at Palazzo Rasponi dalle Teste Piazza Kennedy in Ravenna (Italy) an e-shape labeled event was held in Italian and presented some of the project’s pilots related to maritime activities.

The structure of the workshop was flexible and completely customizable according to the needs of the co-organisers.The first part setted the stage by introducing the audience to EO markets trends and the potential of satellite applications for the use and benefit of specific users’ categories with a particular focus on the policy development and funding opportunities. The second part was 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 provided hands-on training and users’ benefit.

The format foreseed a Q&A and was meant to be interactive engaging with the through live pools and request for feedback useful to inject in the co-design methodology of the service development.

The e-shape workshop:

• Introduced EO-based applications developed through the project within the selected e-shape 7 thematic showcases among Agriculture, Health, Energy, Ecosystem, Water resources, Disaster Resilience, Climate;
• Integrated the EO-based applications into users’ daily workflows;
• Brought together research, end users and civil society that want to benefit from the understanding and entering the EuroGEO initiative;
• Informed the participants about what the pilot’s service will grant access to in terms of Copernicus data and user’s benefit;
• Fostered discussions and exchange about opportunities and challenges with new potential users of EO-based applications;
• Injected knowledge exchanges on co-design methodologies to develop the operational uptake of mature EO-based services.
