The Treaty of Lisbon of April 2004 constituted the start point of the cooperation between ESA (European Space Agency) and EU (European Union). In the context of this Treaty, some Regions of EU States have initiated experimentally, since 2009, the utilization of satellite technologies to face some problems concerning the managing of water resources, the conservation of forests and biodiversity, the private use of solar energy , the prevention of natural disasters.
