This tender will focus on establishing the necessary interfaces between the users and the GMES service providers to ensure that the Earth observation-based information will be provided in accordance with the technical specifications and quality standards that allow service integration into the user’s operational workflow.
The tender will support the operational uptake of the GMES Emergency Response Core Service for all kinds of emergencies, both inside and outside the EU. For external actions, priority will be given to damage assessment after major natural disasters, such as earthquakes and floods. In the EU, priority will be given to damage assessment in the event of major floods, forest fires and seismic events.
This action is complementary to FP7 R&D activities in the domain of Emergency Response.
