The Satellite Applications Catapult and the Centre for Earth Observation Instrumentation (CEOI) will be hosting a joint technology showcase workshop aiming to foster links between cutting-edge Earth Observation (EO) instrumentation specialists and users of both the data and downstream applications coming from these technologies.
The workshop will focus on the changing EO landscape from both an upstream and a downstream perspective, looking at current and upcoming technologies and applications, and considering market trends and how these might evolve by 2030.
