A study on GMES – Assessing the Economic Value of GMES: “European Earth Observation (EO) and GMES Downstream Services Market Study”

The European Commission (EC) has commissioned a study – Assessing the Economic Value of GMES: European Earth Observation (EO) and GMES Downstream Services Market Study” – investigating the economic impact of the GMES programme beyond the institutional sector, with a focus on the downstream market (which will be followed by a study on the midstream market in 2013).

Initial results show that GMES is not only a monitoring tool for institutional needs, but can also stimulate economic growth and employment in a wide range of industrial sectors. Overall the impact on employment from GMES is estimated at approximately 83.000 jobs in Europe by 2030.

The study was presented by European Commission Vice-President Antonio Tajani yesterday, 4th december 2012, during the London conference “European Space Solutions”, an initiative of the European Commission, hosted by the UK Space Agency.
