NEO Workshops
A workshop sponsored by ESA at the end of June 2015 saw delegates from six ESA Member states meeting with the Agency’s Space Situational Awareness team to discuss asteroids – and to exercise the reactions that each would foresee in the event of a real near-Earth object, or NEO, threat.

National emergency response offices in Switzerland, Germany, Luxembourg, Romania, Sweden and the UK learned how the flow of information during an alert would run from ESA’s NEO Coordination Centre to national authorities and then into national alert and warning systems.
