27-29 June 2018 Innsbruck, Austria
The focus of this workshop was to assess the opportunities for EO research and development as well as downstream activities that may be the basis for future ESA investments to address some of the key information needs relevant to the Alpine Region. These opportunities are being framed with respect to emerging Earth science, development of novel applications, testing innovative information services and implementing required upgrades to capabilities to manage and manipulate large data volumes.
The main output of the workshop is a report summarising the main findings and recommendations for dedicated scientific activities, applications development, service innovation and underlying ICT capabilities for a wide spectrum of users. This report supports ESA in defining future investments in EO research and development activities to foster EO innovation in the Alpine Region.
