The conference and Hessian opening event for the 12th European Satellite Navigation Competition 2015 (ESNC) with over 220 participants was extremely successful. The event was not only well  attended , but also visited by numerous international and top-class participants. Apart from experts, government officials, state agencies, and start-ups, the media was also an interested audience.

Thomas Reiter, ESA Director of Human Spaceflight and Mission Operations, Head of ESOC, Dr. Hans Gerd Terlinden, President Hessian Agency for Land Management and

Geoinformation, Jochen Partsch, Lord Mayor of Darmstadt, Germany, and Reinhard Blasi, European GNSS Agency (GSA), held the introductory words of welcome.


At the Conference we had presentations from the European space programs Galileo and Copernicus which gave us a profound insight into the current state of development and

the opportunities that arise from it.  High-level representatives from politics, science, business and administration had opportunities, in the form   of panel discussions on applications of satellite navigation and earth observation, including Geoinformation to exchange their views.
