The EuroGEOSS Workshop (formerly known as the European GEO Projects’ Workshop) will take place on 12-14 September 2018 at the University of Geneva and the Museum of Ethnography. The event is co-organised by the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment, the European Commission with the support of the University of Geneva.
The workshop brings together European players interested in and actively contributing to the Global Earth Observations System of Systems (GEOSS). The aim is to look for synergies among the participants and to discuss how Europe can contribute to this international effort.
During the last GEO plenary meeting held in Washington DC in October 2017, the EuroGEOSS initiative was launched. Since then, this regional initiative has been increasingly taking shape with the recent launch of the request for expression of interest. The EuroGEOSS workshop will be a milestone for this initiative and an opportunity to meet and discover GEO activities at the European level.
The workshop will focus on European contributions to the three GEO engagement priorities (the Sendai Framework, the Paris Agreement and the SDGs) and will specifically focus on those individual SDGs identified as the priorities of EuroGEOSS.
