CEOI Technology Showcase

The CEOI held a Project Showcase on the 10th December 2018 at ECSAT, Harwell. The primary aim was for project teams to present CEOI-funded projects completed in 2018, to describe the objectives, the technology developments and the main achievements.

There was widespread participation and collaboration from the UK EO community (industry, academia and government), as well from ESA. It was a great opportunity to learn about the great technology developments being undertaken in the UK and meet with many others in the EO community.
