The GreenDeal represents an important overarching policy element of the European Commission for which EO-based solutions will provide ample support. There are already many important Directives within the GreenDeal such as the Circular Economy Action Plan, the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030, the EU Offshore Renewable energy strategy or the Farm to Fork Strategy, while others are in preparation as the new EU forest Strategy or the ZeroPollution action plan.
This Agora will bring together ESA, EC and industry key representatives to discuss the opportunity that Space represents and the related expectations to capture future innovation needs
Moderator Dr. Giuseppe Ottavianelli
