The European Space Agency's Integrated Application Promotion Programme and Tekes are organising a seminar at the Finnish Meteorological Institute Brainstorm auditorium on 26 September 2013. The IAP Ambassador Platforms APBSR and APFin will participate in the overall arrangements.
The IAP - Integrated Application Promotion - programme aims at developing and promoting applications and services using space assets like telecommunication, earth observation, navigation and human space flight technologies. Integrating space data with terrestrial systems brings up a whole new sphere of business potential and innovation. In order to secure sustainable services, a close cooperation with end-users, solution and service providers, as well as major stakeholders is essential.
The seminar discusses new potential applications and services, and serves as a networking platform for establishing new contacts, creating new ideas and building up partnerships for new business opportunities.
Three major themes will be presented:
Smart traffic, forest and electricity grid.
The sessions will include perspectives from research, enterprise and end-users.
The seminar will be in English, starting with coffee & refreshments at 8.30 am.
