The 2013 European Space Agency Living Planet Symposium will be held in Edinburgh, Scotland from 9 to 13 September 2013 and is organised with the support of the UK Space Agency.

We will be there to present the outcomes of Felyx and how Felyx can support Earth Observation missions.



The objective of the Living Planet Symposium is to present the results of ESA EO missions in exploitation by:

  • providing a forum for investigators to report and discuss results of on-going science activities using ERS, ENVISAT, GOCE, SMOS, CRYOSAT, Swarm and ESA Third Party missions data;
  • gathering the Sentinels R&D community;
  • reviewing the development of applications;
  • introducing operational services including GMES;
  • reporting on ESA Exploitation Programmes (DUE, VAE, STSE);
  • reporting on ESA Climate Change Initiative and international cooperation;
  • providing dedicated thematic tutorials and short training courses (ESA toolboxes).

In addition, the Symposium will provide an opportunity to introduce ESA missions in development (Sentinels, Earth Explorers and meteorological missions) and national EO missions
