In my daily work, I seek to harness data from space and satellites. It’s about developing innovative data products and services based on Earth Observation Copernicus Data, ESA missions, Member State contributing missions and European Commission initiatives building on Data. My challenge is to bring our experience further and give it an international perspective by increasing our European footprint as well as growing internationally.
Building on my long-standing experience in international projects and deriving economic and societal value out of data, I contribute to the business vision of bringing space into the non-space sector and vice-versa: bringing lessons learned from other sectors into our space activities
I have equally been supporting the European Commission’s reflections on 21st Century Rulemaking in the Digital Age as well as Open Innovation. Most of our recommendations have been included in the European Commission’s official impact assessment and evaluation guidelines.
Finally, I am a United Nations expert on e-Government and author of the concluding Chapter entitled “Fast-evolving technologies in e-government: Government Platforms, Artificial Intelligence and People” of the 2018 Edition of the United Nations E-Government Survey Gearing E-government To Support Transformation Towards Sustainable And Resilient Societies.
