EC Workshop Space and Security

10:50 - 11:30 hrs
EC Workshop Space

Also a side event of the European Space Solutions Event

This workshop will be a follow on of the panel discussion of the SRE Conference. Those who are interested in space and security can discuss further with project coordinators and the panellists so that they can look through in-depth what security research can do for policy making in the future.

The panel will highlight the latest trends, the role of Stakeholders and the research opportunities. Satellite observation is growing rapidly as a sector and the use of satellite data for security is coming up strongly. There are great opportunities to connect space and security that will show what space can do for practitioners in the field of for example law enforcement, disaster management, border protection and search and rescue.
