The Space Economy represents one of the most promising development trajectories of the world economy for the next decades. In fact, in the space sector we are witnessing a very rapid growth of economic activities and consequently the creation of various opportunities and new perspectives for business in various economic sectors. Large quantities of Earth Observation data are created every day which, processed with the appropriate skills and technical knowledge, and integrated with other territorial data, can offer valid support for environmental monitoring and the management of activities such as, for example, those connected to the economy of the sea and ports.

This workshop is proposed by the Genova Blue District and the GISIG Association, with the aim of presenting the results of the EO4GEO project and examples of significant studies and applications carried out by organizations, companies and institutes of the Geo-information and Earth Observation community.
