EODC Forum 2022



TUtheSky Getreidemarkt 9, 1060 Wien BA Gebäude, 11. OG

EODC Forum 2022 – June 15

We would like to thank the 105 registrants from 58 organisations, spanning 11 different countries for their in-person as well as online attendance and active participation. It was great to see and feel the support that the EODC receives from the public, partners and colleagues in the Earth observation (EO) community and beyond!

This year the EODC Forum was a hybrid event that featured presentations from the public, scientific and private EO sector focusing on specific EO developments including talks from ESA, JRC, EUMETSAT, EURAC, EGI and others. Furthermore, presenters with a focus on technical developments, services and user experience were included in the agenda as well.

Our subsequent Networking-Dinner proved to be a much welcomed opportunity to connect and build on existing and/or new business partnerships and opportunities.

We are already looking forward to welcoming you again next year in person at the EODC Forum 2023! It is scheduled for May 2023 at TUWien, TUtheSky in Vienna.
