Happy BEarthday is organized by the STEREO team, Belgian Science Policy office, Direction Space Research and Applications.
STEREO stands for Support to the Exploitation and Research in Earth Observation.
30 years ago: the Belgian government launched the TELSAT programme, the first Belgian programme for remote sensing research. Its prime focus: tentatively exploring the possibilities offered by the French SPOT satellite for research.
Today, TELSAT has become STEREO and its now in its third phase. Remote sensing is firmly entrenched as a tool in research and resource management and Belgium has a vibrant remote sensing community.
30 years of continuous dedicated financing of remote sensing research is quite unique in Europe. So we thought it was time to step back and take stock. Time to reminisce and to look forward to the future. But above all, time to celebrate!
If you want to know more about STEREO programmes, please visit our website Belgian Earth Observation Platform and/or have a look at our STEREO II final publication on the EOEdu website.
