“NEREUS and its member region Apulia will organize an international workshop aimed at presenting how space uses and applications respond to a number of societal and economic challenges of the everyday life. Bringing together the demand and supply side of space services, the idea is to better understand regional needs and potential benefits of an increased uptake”.

The International Conference “SPACE4YOU” jointly organised by NEREUS, the Network of European Regions Using Space Technologies, and Puglia Region, will take place in Bari, the capital of Puglia, in the South of Italy, 27 – 28 February 2014.

The conference will gather European regions and representatives from European Commission, space agencies and industries, academia and research institutions to highlight the fundamental role of “Space as a driver for Competitiveness and Growth”.

Space technologies have become an important part of everyday life. Participants will present how the use of space assets, and applications, is crucial for European regions, to foster new business opportunities and to address social, economic and environmental challenges with efficient and sustainable tools.

The programme includes user-driven sessions, thematic sub-sessions, round tables and special events that will allow European regions and key-players to open debate, to share knowledge and expertises on the importance of space applications – and derived services – for growth, social benefits and sustainable development.

 

The 2014 edition of the NEREUS International Conference will be accompanied by an exhibition promoting regional, national and European space activities.
