The benefits of the EU Space Programme and 3SOS

Organised by The Global Action on Space


The Global Action on Space, in collaboration with the Czech Presidency of the Council of the EU Council, is organising its first hybrid event in Asia, which will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, on 11 October 2022. The event will follow up on the success of the previously organised “Climate change and EU space data: exploring opportunities for ASEAN countries” webinar for the Asian region.

The hybrid event will be dedicated to highlighting the benefits that the EU Space programme can bring to local communities and actors in the ASEAN and Indo Pacific space ecosystems. A particular focus will be placed on the topics of climate change, emergency response capabilities, and 3SOS (Space Safety, Security and Sustainability of Outer Space).

The morning session will introduce the EU Space Programme and highlight the opportunities related to the Copernicus and Galileo components. In particular, the session will illustrate applications and products related to the free and open data policy of the Copernicus Land, Ocean, Climate Change, and Emergency monitoring services. Galileo’s Search and Rescue (SAR) service and its benefits for disaster risk reduction and management will also be presented. The afternoon session will focus on introducing concepts concerning a European approach to Safety, Security and Sustainability of outer space (3SOS) as well as related opportunities for collaboration.
