Presenting at the ESA Living Planet Symposium 2022

The ESA Living Planet Symposium “focuses on how Earth observation contributes to science and society, and how disruptive technologies and actors are changing the traditional Earth observation landscape” (quote from the website). Since this conference will take place from 23-27 May 2022 in the World Conference Center Bonn, practically on our doorstep, we obviously applied to present some of our work.

Logo and slogan of the symposium: Taking the pulse of our planet from space

As you can see from the programme some of our suggestions were chosen. Quite a lot of our work would not be possible without partners, so the ones presented by our partner organisations are marked accordingly:


“A platform for biodiversity-related portfolio risk assessment based on Earth Observation and open geodata”
