9th GEO European projects workshop

15-16 June 2015, Copenhagen, Denmark

The 9th GEO European Projects' Workshop is co-organised by the European Commission, the European Environment Agency (EEA) and the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI). The event is recorded and streamed live here.

The workshop brings together European players interested in and actively contributing to the Global Earth Observations System of Systems (GEOSS). The aim is to enable participants to present their work and discuss maximising benefits from the European contribution to this international effort. 

The event is timed on the cusp of the new GEO Strategic Plan and the upcoming Transitional Work Programme of GEO for 2015, enabling to build momentum and coherence in Europe around plans for the next decade. In this context, Horizon 2020 research programme and the EU Programme for Earth observation, Copernicus, are key vehicles to contribute to GEOSS and respond to European policy priorities. 

Detailed agenda is here.

Presenting results from Pan-European Survey on Citizen Experience and Satisfaction with Public Services

15 June 2015, Brussels

ANTICORRP is a large-scale research project funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme. The central objective of ANTICORRP is to investigate factors that promote or hinder the development of effective anti-corruption policies. This interdisciplinary project includes researchers from anthropology, criminology, law, economic, gender studies, history, law, political science, public policy and public administration. The project is organised into four thematic pillars, which include 11 substantive work packages.

During this event, Anticorrp researchers will present the results of our Pan-European Survey on the Quality of Government and Corruption at the national and regional level, conducted in 2013.

The survey, which was conducted by researchers from the Quality of Government Institute, is the largest multi-country governance survey aimed at capturing regional variation and its explanations. The survey focused on the experience of citizens in 206 European regions with public services and their level of satisfaction as well as on individual strategies of getting the desired quality of service. Building on previous collaborations with the EU Commission and DG REGIO, we present a new round of the ’European Quality of Government Index (EQI), which is the first multi-country, sub-national indicator of quality of government. In addition to the survey results, several other questions of research interest, such as the level of social trust, perceptions and experiences with meritocracy in the public and private sector and the impact of a corruption scandal on voting patterns were included in the survey and will be presented. The survey was initiated during the month of February, 2013 and was conducted in the local majority language of each country/region.

The sample size of citizens in the survey was over 85,000 Europe-wide, with the final focus of the collected data aimed at the regional level. The survey selectively sampled 400-plus citizens per region (NUTS 1 or 2) in 24 countries, and the sample size for each country varies depending on the number of regions.
