|All citizens and organisations are welcome to contribute to this consultation. Contributions are particularly sought from public authorities, research organisations, relevant business sector including SMEs, non-governmental organisations, interest groups, socio-economic partners and civil society interested in the global context of Earth observation.|
|Period of consultation|
|From 26.01.2015 to 20.04.2015|
|Objective of the consultation|
This survey builds on consultations conducted by the European Commission in 2013 and 2014 with the aim to provide the state of play regarding the implementation of the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) by the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) during the last ten years. As an outcome of these previous consultations (see reference documents accessible from this survey), several preliminary issues and possible actions at EU level have been identified in view of accelerating the evolution of the GEOSS into a system that could effectively contribute to EU policies, generate business opportunities for the EU industry and bring benefits to European society as a whole.
