IDEEO | Internationalisation and Diversification of European Earth Observation

For 15 months, starting from January 2018, IDEEO will internationally promote the use of European Earth Observation capability in the marine and agriculture sector and create a new European partnership able to compete on global markets. Funded under the COSME Cluster Go International action, IDEEO has been selected by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) and is implemented by the following consortium:

  • the European Association of Remote Sensing Companies – EARSC – leads the projects;
  • Pôle Mer Bretagne Atlantique (France) – sectoral cluster covering the maritime sector
  • Cluster Lucano di Bioeconomia (Italy) -sectoral cluster covering the agriculture sector
  • NEREUS, involved as partner for the dissemination and contact with the regional level.


The IDEEO project partners have set themselves 4 specific objectives in order to meet the expected impacts:

  • Analyse international market and policy aspects in order to define sectors with the highest export potential for the European observation-based solution companies
  • Develop a joint cross-cluster and cross-sectorial internationalisation strategy in order to internationally promote the European Earth Observation sector in the selected sectors
  • Propose an implementation roadmap facilitating the internationalisation of the European SMEs
  • Maximise the impact of the activities through well-defined communication, dissemination, stakeholder engagement and exploitation strategies.


Two thematic workshops are foreseen in the frame of the project, with the objective to assess the needs of the agriculture and maritime fields, link them to the solutions provided by the EO sector and better define internationalisation priorities.








  • Workshop in Brest, France (beginning of October 2018)
