About Us

Our DNA 

ALSO Space provides comprehensive consultancy services in Earth Observation (EO), GIS, Geo Data Visualisation, Emergency Management, Environmental Protection, Security, and Defence. What sets us apart is our vibrant and unique blend of technical savviness in EO, professional and impactful communication, user engagement strategies, and community-building expertise. We are also very passionate about our work and extremely focused on impact and inclusivity. 

Our international team comprises staff fluent in a multitude of languages including English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish. With the diverse backgrounds of our staff, we are highly agile when it comes to assembling teams of topical experts and specialised service providers, forming successful delivery teams for complex projects. 

Our structure 

Based in the heart of Brussels, Belgium, ALSO Space, was created in June 2022 by Annamaria Luongo and Stéphane Ourevitch. We employ 16 consultants, not only including experts specialised in Earth Observation, GIS, Geo Data Visualisation, Emergency Management, Environmental Protection, but also in communication, user uptake, and community management. Three of our staff members are based in Central America. 

Despite its recent creation, our company is showing sustained growth, and seeking new talent to support recently acquired international assignments. 

The founders of ALSO Space have close to 30 years of combined experience in communication and community building with an extensive background in the Copernicus ecosystem. Both have a well-established track record of successfully delivering on high profile projects and nurturing community expansion for clients such as the European Commission, ESA, EUMETSAT, and major players in the Earth Observation industry. 

Our Experience and Expertise  

ALSO Space's strength stems from our team’s expertise in Earth Observation, remote sensing, GIS, computer science, physics, data and environmental sciences, ecology, volcanology, and climatology. Additionally, our consultants bring a wealth of functional skills in areas such as communication, social media management, event management, data visualisation, user engagement and support, and community management. This combination makes ALSO Space unique, and uniquely equipped to manage both the technical and community engagement aspects of projects. 

Our company’s founders have demonstrated their commitment to having impact through the successful completion of assignments for various esteemed organisations including the European Commission (DG DEFIS, EEA, DG INTPA, DG ENV and DG JRC), ESA, EUMETSAT, CNES, Belgium’s Royal Military School, Airbus Defence and Space, Thales Alenia Space, Telespazio, e-Geos, Planetek Italia, GMV, and Indra.

Our Service Portfolio 

The different elements of ALSO Space’s service portfolio share a common trait: a solid grasp of content knowledge, a strong commitment to delivering impact and excellence, a well-established network in the EO and Copernicus communities, as well as in the private and academic ecosystems, and a proven track record of successful delivery and satisfied clients.

Samples and References

As part of its communication and community-building strategies, ALSO Space leverages its vast experience in developing and animating Copernicus-related and conservation-minded communities, such as the Copernicus Academy, the Copernicus Emergency Management Service, Copernicus Marine Service, and Copernicus Support Office (now EU Space Support Office). Our company also taps into its established network of multipliers. This comprehensive approach, involving a balanced mix of workshops, events, and professional use of social media, allows ALSO Space to effectively reach out to and engage with the community. 

Our team’s extensive technical knowledge, particularly in Earth Observation (EO), Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and Geo Data Visualisation, significantly reinforces ALSO Space's ability to guarantee the success of the assignments it is entrusted with. This technical aptitude firmly establishes our company as a valuable partner, pivotal in addressing challenges effectively and delivering impactful solutions and communication with a service-driven and problem-solving attitude.
