The world is ever rapidly changing and the resilience and adaptation to Covid-19 demonstrate it, in particular in space operations. Traditional ways of working are being replaced by fundamentally new approaches, providing both, new opportunities and challenges for existing and new actors in space.
ESOC is proud to invite all stakeholders in ground segments and operations to a workshop on future ground segments and operations needs. The objective is to sustain the exchange on industrial needs, trends and innovation in space operations.
On 22 February 2022, the remote workshop will offer a key note, plenary impulse and interactive panels on the main areas of interest put forward by the attendees. In the parallel, a “B2B” will provide the opportunity for networking in a virtual environment.
The Operations Directorate is organising the second Operations Industry Day as a platform for exchange to further align its current and future activities with the needs of its stakeholders and partners. The outcome is expected to boost Member States’ Space Industry commercial competitiveness in the domains of Space Operations and Space Safety.
Today, and over the last few exceptionally challenging years, Europe’s mission operations continue to demonstrate the reliability, security and flexibility of the existing ground segment infrastructure systems. However, if we are to meet the future challenges highlighted in ESA’S Agenda 2025, a number of areas require urgent attention. These include digitalisation, cybersecurity, environmental protection, artificial intelligence and automation. Responding to these challenges for the benefit of all of our stakeholders requires the joint definition of a number of high-potential opportunities for industry.
The event will also offers the opportunity for the development of future partnerships.

The Operation Industry Day 2022 will be held as a full online event through the "Let's Get Digital" platform on 22 February 2022. In order to join the event, which is free of charge, you can register on the official website.
