European’s attitudes to space activities 2

Expected priorities of Europeans in 20 years’ time Europeans think that: employment (47%) and health (42%) should be the main priorities of the EU in 20 years’ time, while energy (37%) and the environment (33%) are the areas where Europeans are most likely to foresee space activities playing an important role in 20 years’ time. Health, employment and education are linked as priority EU policy areas in 20 years’ time – Europeans who mention one of these as a priority are also more likely to mention the other two. Employment and the economy are also linked in the same way. When comparing the results of the two questions it appears that the environment and security are the two domains where similar numbers of respondents think both that this should be a priority for the EU in 20 years’ time and that Space derived technologies and services will play a role in it. 3

Impact of space activities on societal aspects Almost 6 out of 10 Europeans think that investing in human space exploration can lead to medical progress (57%). space activities can have a positive impact on environmental protection and more efficient agricultural activities (72%), predicting weather factors (74%) and understanding climate change (73%). More than 7 out of 10 Europeans think Almost 6 out of 10 Europeans (58%) think that space activities contribute to job creation in the EU. (except in Slovakia where respondents are divided) More than half of Europeans would be interested in using information derived from observing the Earth from space to help plan travel and outdoor activities (55%). 4

Impact of space activities on societal aspects Almost three-quarters of Europeans think that including subjects linked to space activities in educational materials would encourage students to choose careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (73%), and that teaching subjects linked to space activities at school can help children to better imagine the society of the future (71%). Almost half of all Europeans (48%), a relative majority, would be ready to use automated vehicles guided by satellite systems in 20 years’ time. Future sub-orbital flights are expected by Europeans to be most useful for travelling faster between two points (34%) and for transporting urgent or valuable goods to distant destinations (30%). More than one-third of Europeans (37%) say that the future combination of observations from satellites and unmanned aerial vehicles will improve security in the EU, while 25% think this will be a threat to privacy, and 20% think that both of these statements are true. 5

Europeans and space threats 3 Europeans out of 10 (30%) are concerned about large asteroids and comets hitting Earth, and 35% are concerned about the disruption of spacebased services caused by collisions with other satellites or space debris. More than 6 Europeans out of 10 (62%) agree that space technologies have a role to play in avoiding threats like asteroids, comets, and space debris collisions. 6

Regione Europeans and space exploration Puglia Area Politiche per lo Sviluppo economico, Il lavoro e l’innovazione There is no clear consensus among Europeans about how important it is for the Apulia Regional Government EU to invest further in space exploration: 47% say it is important, while 46% say Research & Innovation Department it is not important. InnovaPuglia spa Europeans who think that further investment in space exploration is important highlight the following reasons: to develop and test new technologies (63%) and to make unexpected scientific discoveries (53%). LIVING LAB: SPACE FOR These represent 29% and 24 of all the respondents respectively. REGIONS Focus space Spazio 20 is Europeans who do not think further investment in Groupexploration febbraio 2014 important are most likely to say this because they think there are other more pressing issues (72%). This represents a third of all the respondents (33%). This result might be linked to the current overall socio-economic context. 9

Focus group on 20th february 2014 Regional ICT Living Labs platform: structured needs catalogue and focus group participation model. Participant: SMEs, Technological district, Research center, Universities, Politechnic, Living Labs beneficiary actors, InnovaPuglia Aim:  Share demonstration and Living Labs pilot projects in the field of environment, security and territorial protection,  Collect specific needs or challenges that could be tackled by means of space technology  Highlight critical aspects to be care about 10

Regional answers from the living labs network 1. WHAT has already been developed in Puglia? 2. HOW SPACE technologies and services intercepted and satisfied users requirements or needs? 3. With WHOM was built? the solution 11

Questions for the stakeholders 1. 2. 3. LIVING LAB: SPACE FOR REGIONS Bari, February 28th 2014 4. Output: Mobilising ‘demand’ of services built on a stack of public and freely available data. Stepping up any necessary regulation and interoperability standards. Identify and promote education and training in secondary school and university on specific space technology. Encourage research and development efforts on •   Real time satellite image for security, emergency and monitoring; Remote observation of the subsoil for sub-land infrastructure register; Satellite monitoring of Cultural heritage. 12
