The use of space technologies in different sectors of the EU economy has seen an increase lately.

Advocates suggest that satellite data could help improve or even optimise production, from agricultural practices to drinking water processing.

In this special report, EURACTIV.com will focus on the SPACE-O project, which is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 and deals with better management of drinking water.

It will examine how space technologies, such as EU’s Copernicus space program, could help the industry address consumers’ demands for safe drinking water.
