Interreg Europe STEPHANIE Kick-off meeting

The STEPHANIE project is holding its first interregional learning event (7-8 February 2017) in Sesto Fiorentino (IT), in the CNR-IFAC premises.

8 partners from 7 different countries are gathered together, in order to start exchange of experiences on the theme of space technology with photonics. The project, funded by INTERREG EUROPE, focuses on improving regional policies in order to ensure that the policy is designed to guarantee real benefits from space technology based on photonics, particularly in space and earth observation.

The partners participate in a first session presenting the project and the regions involved, followed by a technical session and a study visit to the company LEONARDO. The second day will be dedicated to an interactive workshop involving also regional stakeholders (representatives from the Quadruple Helix) that will support STEPHANIE’s activities at local level.
