El Ártico es un lugar único en nuestro planeta, donde la influencia del cambio climático se hace sentir en un mayor grado que en otros lugares. Permitiendo una mejor comprensión del medio ambiente, protección de los recursos naturales del Ártico y garantizar un desarrollo económico sostenible en la región son de la mayor importancia. Los activos espaciales ya están siendo empleados para este fin y pueden hacer mucho más en el futuro..........

The Arctic is a unique location on our planet where the influence of climate change is being felt at a higher degree than elsewhere. Enabling a better understanding of the environment, safeguarding the Arctic's natural resources and ensuring sustainable economic development in the region are of the utmost importance. Space assets are already being employed to this purpose and can do much more in the future.
In response to discussions with several ESA member states on this topic, the European Space Agency has initiated preparatory and programmatic activities and outlined a draft roadmap that would contribute to the necessary infrastructure with activities from all domains (e.g. Earth Observation, Telecommunications, Navigation, Science, Technology…). Both the Arctic priorities and strategies of the States active in the region, together with the current draft roadmap will be presented at the workshop.
The collaborative roundtables will aim at stirring up the discussions around the Arctic needs in order to highlight selected topics for ESA to take into consideration when putting forward a proposal to the Ministerial Council on 1-2 December 2016.
