INSPIRE Conference 2012

ISA participationVenue: Istanbul, Turkey
Organised by Ministry of Environment and Urbanization, Joint Research Centre - European Commission
From 23/06/2012 to 27/06/2012


The theme of this year's edition of the INSPIRE Conference is "Sharing environmental information, sharing innovation".

With the introduction of the INSPIRE Directive 2007/2, the policy landscape for sharing environmental information has changed drastically. The Commission Communication on the Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS 2008) and follow-up activities at national and European levels have further helped to cultivate a new vision for a coordinated framework for the implementation and monitoring of environmental policies. The governance, content, and supporting technologies are the three pillars with which this vision can be consolidated and implemented.

The aim of this year's INSPIRE Conference is therefore to look at how innovations in these three areas have further shaped the landscape of sharing environmental information. The technical program will feature keynote addresses, workshops, panels in addition to presentations and posters. The call for contributions reflects the three pillars: Governance, Content and Technologies.
