FOLLOW-UP BREAKFAST MEETING ON "Earth Observation for sustainable Development in Africa"

The Free Hanseatic City of Bremen, in coordination with the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Network of European Regions Using Space Technologies (NEREUS) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), are organizing a second breakfast meeting on "Earth Observation for Sustainable Development in Africa" (Thursday, 15th June 2017 - 9.30-11.30). 

The working breakfast is a follow-up of the Workshop on “Earth Observation Application for Sustainable Development in Africa”, 13 - 16 February 2017, in Bremen, Germany. It will provide a summary and an overview of the achieved results and will look into future perspectives for the short run in 2017 and also medium and long term planning in the future.

The event will be opened by Christian Bruns, Representative of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen, and Roya Ayazi, Secretary General of NEREUS, and the presentations will be held by Olga Weigel, GIZ project manager.



NEREUS is about to welcome the Polish region Podkarpackie as a new member to the network.

The Region distinguishes itself through strong capabilities in the aerospace sector, 90% of the Polish aerospace industry and IT-capabilities (main Polish software developer) are concentrated in its territory. Aerospace forms part of the region's smart specialisation strategy and is a key sector of the regional economy that drives also many other fields related to it (electro-mechanical engineering, metal casting and composite materials production).

In view to the adhesion of Podkarpackie to the network, NEREUS is organizing a workshop in the frame of a large international aerospace congress "Aerospace & Defence Meetings Central" to be held on the 10th of May 2017 in Rzeszow.
