Each focus session tackles a specific space-based service or technology solution, showing how Galileo, EGNOS and Copernicus, as well as the EU’s Horizon 2020 research programme, are creating a range of opportunities for European businesses to build applications and services from.
For example: In the Agriculture & Food session, you’ll see real-world examples of European businesses helping farmers via cutting-edge space applications that increase efficiency and lower costs.
