CREODIAS to attend LIV Panta Rhei Conference
Panta Rhei - as philosopher Heraclitus summarized - means 'everything flows'. The group Panta Rhei Secretariat took this name to host a forum which focuses on continual change of our organizations. With focus on farming, the organization primarly focuses on eliminating administrative burden on farmers, enabling the management of economic resources to the final recipients in a quicker manner, as well offers the opportunity to share ideas and solutions that in turn would save time and money of agriculture players.
The group formed in 1992 by a manner of having an informal meeting, called the implementation of computerized information system within the intervention agencies. At first, only a handful of countries attended the conferences, yet with time the conferences became more formal, and in turn more countries and people started to attend. This year, the conference is taking place in Andau, Austria, and will last three days, during which there will be workshops and presentations from leading experts.
The conference will primarly gather all Paying Agencies from the European Union, which are responsible for the funding of agriculture lands and subsidising farmers in regards to their crop. These Paying Agencies belong to the European Network for Rural Development (ENRD), that acts as a hub for connecting rural Europe and serves as a platform for the sharing of ideas and experiences on how Rural Development Programmes are working in practice.
The main stakeholders of the ENRD include National Rural Networks (NRNs), RDP Managing Authorities and Paying Agencies, Local Action Groups (LAGs); European stakeholder organisations; agricultural advisory services and other interested rural development stakeholders and organisations.
CREODIAS will attend the conference by having our CloudFerro delegation present. You can meet the CloudFerro team in the DIAS section of the conference, where a booth will be present to demonstrate the unique features of our DIAS.

CREODIAS at Industry Space Days 2018
Industry Space Days (ISD) are organised by ESA to bring together the main European players in the space sector. Their main purpose is to increase the involvement of SMEs in space activities and to foster cross-fertilisation between the different actors in the entire space sector. To this end, a series of measures are taken to facilitate networking and the establishing of new business contacts. These include: pre-arranged face-to-face meetings, exhibitions highlighting the innovations and expertise of selected SMEs, briefings on business opportunities by large groups and institutional organisations, and conferences on space perspectives and market trends.
The seventh Industry Space Days event organised by ESA’s SME Policy Office supporting SMEs working with ESA, took place at ESA ESTEC, Noordwijk, in the Netherlands on 11–12 September 2018. ISD 2018 was attended by over 1500 people from industry. Some 900 companies from 39 countries participated in about 15 000 pre-arranged business meetings. An industry exhibition featuring 140 stands provided additional opportunities for European suppliers, especially SMEs, to present their products, projects, or their R&D to potential customers.
CREODIAS was represented by CloudFerro and WIZIPISI.

Sentinel-5 Precursor now on CREODIAS
Sentinel-5 Precursor – also known as Sentinel-5P – is the first Copernicus mission dedicated to monitoring Earth’s atmosphere. It will play a key role in monitoring and tracking air pollution, with the help of its state-of-the-art Tropomi instrument that map a multitude of trace gases such as nitrogen dioxide, ozone, formaldehyde, sulphur dioxide, methane, carbon monoxide and aerosols – all of which affect the air we breathe in.
“Poor air quality continues to affect and claim the lives of millions of people each year, thus it is vital that we have an accurate method of monitoring what exactly we breathe in” – explains Maciej Krzyzanowski, CEO of CloudFerro. “Thanks to its Tropomi instrument, with Sentinel-5P we can zoom in to the Earth’s surface and gain highly detailed, as well as the most accurate data concerning our atmosphere. As of 9th of August 2018, Sentinel-5P data are now available to CREODIAS users”.
Sentinel-5P is the forerunner of Sentinel-5 to provide timely data on a multitude of trace gases and aerosols affecting air quality and climate. It has been developed to reduce data gaps between the Envisat satellite – in particular the Sciamachy instrument – and the launch of Sentinel-5. Sentinel-5P was taken into orbit on a Rockot launcher from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in northern Russia on 13 October 2017.
