17 May 2018 – EXCELSIOR at Israel Space Agency

In order to establish string synergies between the proposed ECoE and the Israeli Space Agency (ISA),  during their visit to Israel, Dr. Christiana Papoutsa and Mr. Andreas Christofe met the Director of Department of External Relations & International Collaborations of the Israeli Space Agency (ISA) from the Ministry of Science, Technology & Space, the diplomat Leo Vinovezky.  Mr. Vinovezky presented the activities of the ISA and the VENS Earth Observation Satellite which is an Israeli-French Satellite that monitors vegetation on Earth using innovative propulsion and EO systems. Mr. Vinovezky expressed his interest to proceed with MOU between the current ERATOSTHENES research centre and ISA. Mr. Vinovezky highlighted that the collaboration of ISA with the ECoE (MOU) is important since it can act as a link in order to promote the collaboration between ISA and the Department of Electronic Communications, responsible for space activities in Cyprus. This liaison will be of benefit of both countries which have started creating links for future collaborations in several sectors including the space sector and will further support the positioning of ERATOSTHENES as a key player of Space based activities in the region.
