ECMWF at LPS 2022 graphic

ECMWF is taking part in the European Space Agency’s 2022 Living Planet Symposium in Bonn, Germany, from 23 to 27 May. The symposium is organised with the support of the German Aerospace Center (DLR).

This symposium focuses on how Earth observation contributes to science and society, and how disruptive technologies and actors are changing the traditional Earth observation landscape, which is also creating new opportunities for public and private sector interactions.

Nearly 40 ECMWF scientists will be participating – through oral and poster presentations and discussions on a range of topics, including aerosols, the role of Earth observation in climate services, remote sensing, and emerging technologies.

An overview of our participation is given below, and the full Living Planet Symposium programme is available on the LPS22 website.

We also look forward to welcoming visitors at our joint booth with ESA in the New York Hall, in the centre of the exhibition area.
