Every April 15, the Day of Italian Research in the World is celebrated in honor of the birth day of Leonardo da Vinci, undoubtedly the father of Italian science. The Embassy of Italy in the
Argentine Republic joined the worldwide celebrations with a webinar organized for April 15, at 6:00 pm, open to the public, broadcasted by its own channel YOUTUBE, whose thematic axis was Cooperation in space technologies between Italy and Argentina.
The scientific cooperation between Italy and Argentina has ancient roots and has developed in almost all areas, but it is probably in the space sector where both countries have invested more
bilateral efforts in terms of human and financial resources. For this reason this event was dedicated to cooperation in space technologies, focusing on the SIASGE Project (Italian Satellite System for Emergency Management)
established between the space agencies of both countries, ASI and
CONAE , which from the point of view of infrastructure implementation,
the putting into orbit of the 4 Italian COSMO-SKYMED satellites and
the two Argentine satellites SAOCOM 1A and 1B, provided in the original project, is
considered a very successful project.
The event was attended by the Italian Ambassador to Argentina, Giuseppe Manzo; the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation of the Argentine Republic, Roberto Salvarezza; the
President of the Italian Space Agency, Giorgio Saccoccia; the Director of CONAE, Raúl Kulichevsky, and experts in the space sector, Argentine and Italian, who have made possible the
scientific and technological collaboration between our countries in this high-tech sector with fundamental applications for social and economic development.
Towards the end were exemplified the applications of satellite imagery that are part of the recent agreement between the Italian company eGEOS and the Argentine Veng for the joint commercial
exploitation of images.
