Combine geospatial technologies and space data to solve future challenges

Climate change mapping, disaster management, urban planning, land use, and many more are the applications where space data, if appropriately exploited, can play an important part in increasing the applicability of geospatial technologies. The major expansion and development of geospatial technologies brings quite an interesting correlation between the areas where this expansion is predicted, e.g. construction, engineering, ecology, and precision agriculture, and the use of space data. As such, it is essential for potential entrepreneurs of this industry to learn how to navigate the business world through space.

The EUSPA Space Academy, a portal open to aspiring entrepreneurs and start-ups in all kinds of fields, offers a unique chance to explore the potential of space data and learn how to structure, design, and launch a successful business. The learning platform proposes an interactive and easy-to-use interface with options for live and offline sessions.

The programme covers seven topics necessary for a downstream start-up: EU space data and signals, team and technologies customer and sales, product, business, finance, and legal matters. Thanks to its modular and customisable approach, the training allows participants to choose the modules of their interests, as well as follow-up activities, giving them the chance to build a training path based on their specific needs. Additionally, experts from various fields with several years of experience are available for Q&A, workshops, and mentoring sessions.

The space industry has never been more accessible than now. More and more entrepreneurs are taking this opportunity to combine their business with space data to eventually access a larger market and provide added value and the most efficient solutions to their customers. The EUSPA Space Academy provides all support for geospatial experts looking for a programme where space meets business.
