The Conference Climate Science from Space: Synergies for a greener innovation economy is organised within the frame of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher education, with the support of the European Commission.
The conference aims to help building bridges linking space and climate ecosystems, and to contribute to the European Green Deal and to a transition towards greener and climate resilient society and economy. This will be achieved by showing how space-based systems can improve daily lives and contribute to protecting our planet.
