24 May is Africa day at LPS22!

Join us during LPS22 in Bonn to learn about EO AFRICA and the latest research results in Africa.

LPS22 is the key event in Earth Observation, organised every 3 years by ESA and gathering more than 3000 participants from any part of the world. During the 5-days event, the state of the art of scientific research and applications in Africa will be presented in scientific sessions, and dedicated roundtable discussions focussing on Africa and the EO AFRICA Initiative will be organised.
