EUSPA is introducing itself to general public in Prague and the newly created EU Space Programme with an Open Space open-air, flashy exhibition full of colour.

Our daily lives are influenced by what happens in space, much more than we realise. Satellites in orbit allow millions of people to communicate and navigate using new technologies, to travel by land, sea and air, and to develop ways with which we can improve the health of our planet and grow our economy. Every year around November, the Agency used to throw its doors open, to familiarize citizens with its space-related activities through various interactive means. Τhis year, under a new name, with a broadened scope of activities, and while observing the current hygiene rules, the European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) invites you to its first open-air exhibition called "EUSPA Open Space".

"EUSPA Open Space" is a three-day, walk-through, open-air experience which will introduce visitors to the newly established EU Space Programme as well the agency’s new mission. An immersive experience full of colors invites you to discover the latest applications and services enabled by space. A particular focus will be placed on the contribution of EU space to environmental protection and digital innovation. 

"EUSPA’s new mission is multifaceted, complex and fascinating. We deliver the space-based services of Galileo and EGNOS to a growing group of users; We make sure that EU companies are taking advantage of the whole EU Space programme. We ensure the systems’ operations both in space and on the ground while we also stand next to innovators and entrepreneurs looking for space solutions" says EUSPA Executive director, Rodrigo da Costa. "With the EUSPA Open Space, we want to communicate our work to the general public but also highlight the importance of the Union’s investment in space," da Costa concludes.

The exhibition will be open to the public from 4 to 6 November 2021 at Janovského 438/2, 170 00 Praha 7-Holešovice.
