3rd edition European Symposium by NEREUS Regions: Space data for water & energy on 2-3 October 2024, Toulouse/Occitanie, registration and call for best practices!

Co-organized by Occitanie Region and the European network NEREUS, this year’s edition is focused on the use of space data for water and energy. Following the great success of last year’s symposium in Matera, Basilicata/Italy, the European Symposium by NEREUS-regions will be held as an annual event format aimed at enhancing interregional cooperation and networking amongst NEREUS regions and their partners across Europe.


The two-day event will feature keynote speeches, panel discussions, and presentations of best practices in energy and water management. Toulouse and the Occitanie region are a major hub for aerospace innovation, hosting key players, such as CNES, Thales Alenia Space, Airbus Defence and Space, and Aerospace Valley. With strong industry, services, and a dense network of top institutions and SMEs, the ecosystem offers ideal conditions for fostering dynamic new markets (download the concept note).


In this respect, we’ve launched a call for best practices (download link)! All NEREUS partners are invited to identify interested public authorities with responsibilities in the water/energy sectors sharing their needs and expectations by the 30th of June.  In addition, we invite the space and regional cluster communities to propose use cases and success stories in water and energy.


Water and energy play critical roles in advancing the local Green Deal agenda, particularly for green and climate transitions. Climate change’s regional impacts affect agriculture, biodiversity, and economies across partner regions. As a result, local authorities face increasing challenges in managing territories and implementing policies, especially in water and energy management, prompting a search for innovative solutions. Toulouse offers a unique space for industry innovation and academic excellence (download the leaflet). We strongly encourage everyone to participate.


Registration: The registration is available here (priority will be given to NEREUS members), and the deadline is the 18th of September.


Practical Instructions:




Please be reminded that, due to security concerns and the current state of emergency, bringing suitcases to the region’s building is not permitted. Participants must leave their luggage at the hotel.

Additionally, please ensure you bring your ID to the security checkpoint.
