Public-private partnerships in EO - recorded

Mon 4 November from 13:30 to 14:30 in Menzies

Recording: Watch here!



How do I start and develop a public-private partnership? What can I do to make it successful? When should I consider making use of a public-private partnership?

If you’ve asked any of these questions, this interactive session will help you by highlighting and documenting the successful practices of Earth observations and geospatial technology-focused partnerships between public and private organizations. The session will showcase successful partnerships, then will shift to an interactive session to gather working examples from the audience. The lessons and practices gathered will be documented in a handbook for GEO to help broaden engagement and also to support commercial sector engagement.

This side event will also be part of a global study led by Geospatial Media to highlight workable business models for public-private partnerships within different national agencies producing geospatial and Earth observation information and the private sector. The study is being conducted with the intention to promote an integrated data platform that can enable informed decision making to reach SDGs at the national-level.
