The OGC New Space Workshop: Europe

‘New Space’ is a paradigm driven by a combination of technology and market advances such as rocket launches, small satellites, orbital planes, evolving sensors, and ground infrastructures. With this in mind, the location community must have a platform for understanding the impacts of New Space on standards, data integration and decision making. In order to drive this conversation forward, in May, 2020 OGC met with the greater location and space communities for the first ever New Space Workshop. 

As a follow-on conversation to the May New Space Workshop, OGC and EARSC are hosting a two-day session from a global perspective revolving around impacts, dynamics, and standards in New Space that highlights these new technologies, the information powering them, and how they are integrated.

João Fernandes, ARCHIVER Project Coordinator, will join the panel discussion about ‘Cloud-based data systems’ on the 15th of October 2020, introducing the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and ARCHIVER as one of projects in the EOSC framework actively performing R&D between public and private sectors to develop innovative services.
