Successful 2nd Sino-Holland Conference

17 Dec 2015

The 2nd Sino-Holland Conference on Remote Sensing Instrument and Applications for Air Quality and Climate Monitoring was held on November 24th and November 25th in Nootdorp, The Netherlands. The conference is an annual event organized by TNO and BISME Sino-Holland Joint-Laboratory of Space Optical Instruments.

This year’s conference follows the successful events recently held in China for an MoU signing ceremony between CNSA and NSO as well as an LOI between BISME and TNO in the presence of King Willem-Alexander and President Xi.

The conference was opened by Dr. Henri Werij, director of TNO’s focus area Space & Scientific Instrumentation, and it was sponsored by the PIB INSET China.

More than 80 participants from both China and Europe attended the conference, among whom were distinguished guests from Netherlands Ministery of Economical Affairs, Embassy of the People's Republic of China in the Kingdom of the Netherlands,ESA, Chinese National Disaster Reduction Center, Chinese State Forestry Administration, China National Space Administration (CNSA), NSO, RVO, China Academy of Space Technology (CAST), Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology (SAST) etc. In total, 38 technical papers were presented during the two day symposium.

The 3rd Sino Holland Symposium on Space Optical Instruments and Applications is currently planned on June 28th and 29th, 2016, in Beijing.
