The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) organised the fifth Luxembourg Earth Observation and Integrated Applications Day, which took place on 13 October at the Domaine Thermal in Mondorf-les-Bains, in the south-east of Luxembourg.
This year's conference focused on the recent advances in Earth observation, among others in the areas of Luxembourg’s role in the Earth observation ecosystem, Digital Twins, and artificial intelligence, with a particular focus on the impact new technologies have had on the market.
An overview of the ESA and Copernicus programmes, the support Luxembourg provides to Earth observation companies, and an insight into recent advances in remote sensing research and applications were provided. Luxembourg start-ups and newcomers were prominently featured: sponsorship packages offered at discounted rates and a dedicated session provided the possibility to present themselves.
The conference aimed to increase awareness among users and service providers within the Greater Region of the potential that space technologies offer in the domain of environmental monitoring and management. Representatives from the private and public sectors, institutional entities, academia and especially start-ups had the opportunity to present their activities in the earth observation domain.
A poster session on the thematic of the event was organised in parallel of the conference.
