Making space data manageable and comprehensive for end-users and maximising the value of unique Earth Observation data is what drives dotSPACE. By opening ‘The Groundstation’: a space data expert centre, dotSPACE became a landmark for space data use.
DotSPACE is a non-profit organisation focused on education, exploration & creation by means of remote sensing technologies. The DotSPACE foundation was set up within a ‘triple helix innovation framework’ of academia (universities), industry and government to foster economic and social development. It was founded in 2016 to respond to the growing need for innovation with remote sensing data. The initiators Martijn Seijger, Alexander Los, Joris Kruse, Valentijn Venus and Linda van Duivenbode joined forces in this foundation.
The activities of the foundation are dedicated to cluster relevant national and international players to respond to new opportunities utilizing satellite data. With an active approach in building consortia, searching for required skills, their expertise and guidance to successfully apply for Earth Observation related tenders, provides a fertile ground for companies to cooperate and share knowledge.
In the upcoming years dotSPACE plans to organise frequent master classes on the Space Campus and to continue tender desk activities and other programs to effectively stimulate new applications, new opportunities, new markets and create more jobs. Each euro invested in satellite technology represents a high return of investment, with lots of business opportunities.
