CELEBRATE THE 10 YEARS ANNIVERSARY OF NEREUS

This year, NEREUS will celebrate the 10 years anniversary of the network since the signature of its Political Charter. Although the rationale of the scope of collaboration remains the same, and the foundations of the network still lie at the regional level, NEREUS strives to reposition itself in the changing panorama of the space sector. Mark your calendars for the 29th of November 2017 and join us at our premises in Brussels to celebrate with us and learn more about how civil society benefits from space applications in various domains. 

WE ARE GLAD TO WELCOME A NEW REGION ON THE PLATFORM: PODKARPACKIE (Poland)

NEREUS welcomes its 26th Full Member: the Polish region Podkarpackie!

The Region distinguishes itself through strong capabilities in the aerospace sector, 90% of the Polish aerospace industry and IT-capabilities (main Polish software developer) are concentrated in its territory. Aerospace forms part of the region's smart specialisation strategy and is a key sector of the regional economy that drives also many other fields related to it (electro-mechanical engineering, metal casting and composite materials production).
