ESA Living Planet Symposium

13 May 2019 - 17 May 2019
The Living Planet symposium 2019 focuses on how Earth Observation contributes to science and society, and how disruptive technologies and actors are changing the traditional Earth Observation landscape, which is also creating new opportunities for public and private sector interactions.
