On 8 June 2016 Ministry of Economic Development and Technology of the Republic of Slovenia (MGRT RS), the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts (ZRC SAZU) organized a conference Earth observation @ ESA – Opportunities for Slovenia. The event showed great interest in Earth observation in Slovenia and at the same time a high level of expertise already achieved. Nearly 50 participants, 8 presentations of Slovenian organizations and 5 presentations from ESA participants in the plenary part, 8 individual meetings and numerous useful discussions during the event are a proof that Slovenia is on the right track and may soon become an important member of this distinguished international organization. Delegation of the ESA raised this several times during the day.
