Under the framework of the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre’s (JRC) call “Science meets Parliaments / Science meets Regions”, the Ministry of Economy, the Luxembourg Space Agency, the University of Luxembourg Faculty of Law, Economics, and Finance, and the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) are co-organizing the one-day conference titled Space solutions for sustainability on Earth, which will take place on October 4, 2019 at the premises of the Chamber of Deputies of Luxembourg. The aim of the program is to build closer links between scientists, academia and policy makers focused on the environmental issues, in order to promote a culture of evidence-informed policy making.

The event will focus on domestic environmental topics and the use of space technologies (Earth observation and GNSS) to support policymakers in their decision-making through the use of space data mainly from the European space programs: Copernicus and Galileo. Most importantly, this conference has a special focus on the Luxembourg’s United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
