Information

BEODay this year will be unusual. For the first time in our nearly 20 year history, we will have a virtual event.

And yes, while this means no scenic location and no networking over lunch, there is a big upside as well.

The virtual format will allow us to expand our audience. This year the B in BEODay stands for Border-crossing. We have partnered up with the Netherlands Space Office (NSO), for a compact but interesting programme.

Scientists from both Belgium and the Netherlands will be able to participate and learn more about one another’s research and research programmes.

The Belgian Earth observation research programme STEREO allows the participation of international teams on the basis of cost sharing. Several researchers from the Netherlands are involved in its projects.
