Road in action

The Secure Connectivity Initiative will provide secure communication services to the EU and its Member States as well as broadband connectivity for European citizens, private companies and governmental authorities.

Making Europe fit for the Digital Age with the European Connectivity Initiative

28 June 2021
Complementing Copernicus, Galileo, EGNOS, and the forthcoming GOVSATCOM, this new EU flagship programme, will benefit a broad range of sectors, including road and maritime transport, air traffic and control, autonomous vehicle development as well Internet of Things (IoT). It will also open up more opportunities for synergies between the already existing components of the EU Space Programme that can benefit maritime surveillance or even space situational awareness.
Individually and in synergy, the EU Space Programme components are making Europe greener.

Going green? Look to EU Space!

03 June 2021
From the air we breathe to the water we drink and the land we grow our food on, our ecological footprint and means to minimise it are more in the focus than ever. Innovative technological solutions, including space-based applications, can help to prevent pollution and reduce its negative impacts: from agriculture to transport. To mark the European Green Week 2021, which runs from 31 May to 4 June, we look at some of the contributions that space is making to a greener future.
