The conference “Shaping the EO*GI skills of the future” took place on the 17th and 18th of May as a hybrid event online and in Brussels.
The event brought together a broad and diverse range of stakeholders in the field of EO*GI including European institutions (the European Commission, EUSPA, ESA, as well as local and regional ones), with representatives of the private sector and academia and training providers, who discussed together the current needs and education gaps in the EO*GI sector, what means are put in place to tackle it, and what additional steps and initiatives shall be further undertaken.
The conference also showcased the work done under EO4GEO and defined how the Blueprint project will transition into post-project legacy led by the EO4GEO skills Alliance aimed at supporting skills building in the sector. The impact of bridging the skills gap will contribute towards forming a workforce capable to support and implement numerous policies such as the European Green Deal and the monitoring of the UN’s SGDs.
