The ERATOSTHENENES Research Center is pleased to announce that it has become an associated partner to the FabSpace 2.0 Project, led by Université Paul Sabatier, which aims at fostering co-creation of innovative Earth Observation applications by enabling Universities to become Open Innovation Centres for their region.
The FABSPACE and EXCELSIOR project can work together to foster innovation EO solutions, support further business development, as well as exploit, sustain and disseminate EO applications and services.
ERATOSTHENES strongly supports the concept of creating a network of partnering Universities in many European countries for sharing good practices regarding educational programs and business mentoring as well as innovative application ideas developed by interdisciplinary project teams, based on using a free geo-information platform to access and process Earth Observation data and geo-spatial data.
We believe that the FabSpace approach brings a significant added-value in the promotion of new Earth Observation based applications and paves the way for the creation of new start-ups, providing job opportunities and professional growth for students and researchers, establishing mutually beneficial relationships in Europe and beyond.
What is FABSPACE 2.0
An open-innovation network for geodata-based innovation – by leveraging Space data in particular in Universities; A one-stop shop-access to Space data and a wide range of other data as well as free software and data processing tools to develop new digital applications.
