The Φ-lab Explore Office

Our goal is to enable a connected network of talents that brings together expertise and ideas from researchers, industry, ICT players, innovators and start-ups to foster learning from EO data with new technologies for a more sustainable planet Earth.

Pierre-Philippe Mathieu, Head of Φ-lab Explore Office

Supported by a core team of staff in charge of industrial activities and a diverse team of researchers – including ESA research fellows, Young Graduate Trainees, visiting scientists from both academia and industry – these new players will collaborate on a suite of pilot projects focusing on transformative data-driven technologies.

The Φ-lab also operates as an open space or collaborative platform hosting visitors from academia and industry to investigate new ideas together, providing ESA with a kind of “Think Tank” to explore new activities.
