Overview

About us

The European Association of Remote Sensing Companies (EARSC) is a professional industrial body (trade association) with the mission to foster growth of the Earth-observation (EO) services sector. The Association maintains close links with key European Institutions, including the European Commission, European Parliament, European Environment Agency and other agencies, Eumetsat, the European and  National Space Agencies, as well as global bodies such as GEO (Group on Earth Observations), providing a unified voice on wider European and global issues of importance to the industrial sector. EARSC also maintains connections with a number of other umbrella organisations at European and National levels. We work with Eurogi (as an observer member), Eurisy, Eurospace, NEREUS in Brussels and with National Associations where they exist. Where no national association exists we sometimes also act on behalf of a national cluster of companies to help them with national policy, strategies and networking.
