Innovative Earth Observation for Society and Policy

Satellite Earth observations can provide valuable data and information for understanding the interconnections on a global scale between nature and society. There is a pressing need to better understand whether present and future satellite technologies and systems are meeting this expectation to contribute to policy, society and economy.

This international seminar will invite international experts on science, policy and the social and economic benefits of satellite observation from academia, space agencies, international organisations and industry to discuss the possibility of objectively evaluating the impact of satellite observations on environmental policy, society and economy. The seminar aims to provide feedback on new technological innovations for the next generation of satellite observation, as well as recommendations for future models and missions to contribute to global needs.

It is being organised as part of the Policy and Earth Observation Innovation Cycle (PEOIC) project, which is being jointly implemented by the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT), Keio University, the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). The PEOIC project is under the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) Research Institute of Science and Technology for Society (RISTEX).
