Description: 

The Africa-Europe Space Earth Observation High-Level Forum is a hybrid event that will take place in Lisbon, on 10-11 June 2021, organised in the framework of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education of Portugal, with the support of the European Commission.

The Forum, the theme of which is space as an enabler for digital and green transitions, with earth observation fostering sustainable development, new skills and job creation, has as its aim to foster European-African cooperation on advanced earth observation (EO) and data processing systems and their applications in a user-driven approach.

14 years after the 2nd EU-Africa Summit (held in Lisbon in December 2007) and the launching of the GMES & Africa process, substantial progress has been achieved in the use of EO data and in the development of applications and services. In light of the opportunities offered by new technologies and by the new political context, the renewal and fostering of European and African cooperation in this domain is of paramount importance to pursue the Sustainable Development Goals and the green transition.
