As a contribution to the ASEAN-EU Year of Science, Technology and Innovation 2012, the photographic exhibition “Eye of the Sky” show dramatic satellite images of Southeast Asia from the German Aerospace Center (DLR). The pictures illustrate the fast pace of transformation of natural landscapes by human activity.
Science addresses the challenges posed by this transformation by developing sustainable land use systems, efficient water technologies, risk and disaster management concepts, exploring renewable energy sources and planning the city of tomorrow. To highlight the ever closer cooperation between Southeast Asia and Europe, all images are linked to actual joint research projects, funded by either the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in Germany or the EU-FP7-programme.
"Eye of the Sky" was created so that the wider public could enjoy the beauty of nature and be informed about the advancement of scientific collaboration between Southeast Asia and Europe.
