Copernicus Benefits for Singapore

21 September, 2018 | Singapore (Raffles City Tower)

The European Commission is organising a Copernicus event in Singapore on 21 September 2018. It will bring together representatives  from the European Commission with European companies, Singaporean companies, and Singaporean authorities working in Earth Observation or environmental monitoring for a Copernicus Infosession in the morning. 



Background information:

Copernicus is the European Union's Earth Observation Programme, which monitors our planet and its environment for the ultimate benefit of the citizens of the world. For the Asian region, the Copernicus program offers following advantages:

  1. Preserving rich biodiversity
  2. Securing large Exclusive Economic Zones
  3. Supporting risk management in areas prone to natural disasters and affected by the consequences of climate change

This means comprehensive maritime monitoring by Sentinel-1 (one of seven satellites from which the programme obtains data) for our Singaporean partner.

For more information, please refer to the draft agenda.

These events are open and free for registered participants.

The theme for this year's panel session is "Space Technologies for Smart Cities".


  1. Promote research and development activities on the spacecraft bus, payload and satellite applications.
  2. Increase awareness on space industry's direction.
  3. Foster collaboration on satellite technologies between public institutions and industries

Main topics 2018:

  • Keynote address for SSS 2018 delivered by Prof. Charles Elachi: "The importance of remote-sensing from space"
  • Definition of a smart citiy in the context of space technologies.
  • Data analytics and exploitation (AI, deep learning, blockchain, etc.).
  • Ways to incorporate space technologies into exisiting processes.

Please find further information and the registration tool here.

This year's programme will conclude with a highly anticipated panel discussion by leaders of various organizations, sharing their insights on how the realization of a smart city in Singapore could be enhanced through space technologies.

The EPIC part of the SSS brings together European researchers active in H2020 with researchers from academia and industry. The aim is to demonstrate European competencies in spatial intelligence, improve awareness of Europe's satellite infrastructure and provide a forum for exchange about future RTDI directions.

INTERESTING: EPIC will also organise a networking session after the main event. This session is for invitated persons only, but if you are interested in joining us after the Space Syposium to discuss on or get informed about Europe's topics concerning spatial intelligence, please write an email to: info@epicproject.eu

eResearch Australasia 2018

15th - 19th October, 2018 | Melbourne (Pullman Albert Park)

eResearch 2018 will offer delegates the opportunity to engage, connect, and share their ideas and exemplars concerning new eResearch capabilities, and how information and communication technologies help researchers to collaborate, collect, manage, share, process, analyse, store, find, understand and re-use data and information.

At the eResearch EPIC finds out the state of play concerning Australia's interest in collaborations with the EU. EPIC tries to localize the most interested target group (DSM) and increases the general awareness of implementing a DSM in European politics until 2020. At the same time, it should be conveyed that there is the possibility of jointly exploring and designing the DSM, especially its eInfrastructures.
