The EuroGEOSS Workshop took place from 3 to 5 July 2019 at the Pavilhão do Conhecimento in Lisbon (Portugal). The event is co-organised by the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) and the European Commission.
The workshop brought together European players interested in and actively contributing to the Global Earth Observations System of Systems (GEOSS).
The aim was to look for synergies across projects, initiatives, to offer networking opportunities to the participants and to discuss how Europe can contribute to the international effort.
The EuroGEOSS initiative was launched in October 2017 during the GEO plenary meeting held in Washington DC. Since then, this regional initiative has been increasingly taking shape. The EuroGEOSS workshop will be a milestone for this initiative and an opportunity to review the latest developments taking place in Europe within EuroGEOSS.
This year's event was dedicated to information with particular emphasis on Ocean observations and focus on user requirements for EuroGEOSS.
