For over 20 years, ESIP meetings have brought together the most innovative thinkers and leaders around Earth observation data, thus forming a community dedicated to making Earth observations more discoverable, accessible and useful to researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and the public. The theme of the meeting is Putting Data to Work: Building Public-Private Partnerships to Increase Resilience & Enhance the Socioeconomic Value of Data.

Following a constructive 2020 ESIP Winter Meeting where we hosted a plenary and breakout session on public-private partnerships, we propose continuing our efforts with a breakout session during the upcoming 2020 ESIP Summer Meeting. Maximizing the societal benefits of Earth science data increasingly requires the development of effective partnerships across the value chain between Earth observation creators, researchers, application developers, and end users. As the participants in these different activities frequently work within different organizational contexts (e.g. public sector agencies, research institutions, private sector companies), explicit consideration of the benefits and challenges of developing effective partnerships between these organizational contexts can contribute to increasing the impact of Earth observation data and information. During this breakout session, we would like to address the following issues:

Featured Speakers: Tim Stryker (USGS); Amanda Regan (ESA-ESRIN); Eva Haas (GeoVille / EO PLUG-IN); Anamika Das (Geospatial Media & Communications)  

Provide a brief introduction on our newly formed collaboration area – ESIP Public-Private Partnership Cluster.

Define public-private partnerships to create a better understanding of what this term means to the earth science community. This may include the development of different public-private partnership categories that can be used to identify differing types of public-private partnerships.

Using virtual breakout rooms, share experiences around the development and maintenance of effective public-private partnerships. Our goal is to work with other ESIP collaboration areas to facilitate the development of new partnerships that are in support of the subject area interests of those collaboration areas. Potential collaboration areas comprise agriculture and climate, community resilience, disaster lifestyle, marine data, and machine learning. In addition to ESIP collaboration areas, we expect to learn more from our invited international colleagues related to their public-private partnership experience and knowledge.

We intend to bring out of this session a summary document that will guide the ESIP Public-Private Partnership Cluster as we build an inventory of best practices and tools. In addition, we will identify particular areas where partnerships might have the greatest impact on increasing the societal benefits of Earth observation data. Last, we want to pinpoint concrete actions that ESIP can take to support community participation in developing partnerships.
