We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The main purpose of this conference is to offer an opportunity for Member States Administrations, EU officials, Image Providers and contractors to meet and discuss particular problems or innovations concerning the management of the Common Agriculture Policy.
The conference covers all technical topics linked to the administration and control of the CAP direct aids such as controls with Remote Sensing (CwRS), Land Parcel Identification Systems (LPIS) management and quality assessment, permanent Ecological Focus Area (EFA) creation and management and more.
This GIGAS workshop, gives stakeholders of GEOSS, INSPIRE or GMES the opportunity to gain insight into and to influence the development of arrangements for interoperability within and between the initiatives. The aim is to achieve a common understanding of how to perform a concerted adoption of activities to influence and shape the evolution of GEOSS, INSPIRE, and GMES towards convergence. This will be discussed on both the strategic and technical levels.
Organised by the International Society for Digital Earth (ISDE), this summit offers a strong opportunity to exchange knowledge, develop research cooperation, discuss important issues and continue to improve the scientific field of Digital Earth. Under the theme 'Digital Earth in the Era of Big Data', it aims to provide an international platform to focus on the application and technologies of Digital Earth for new developments and advances of big data.
The 8th annual INSPIRE Conference will take place in Denmark, 16-20 June 2014
Each year, a European INSPIRE conference is held to provides a forum for stakeholders from government, academia and industry to hear about and discuss the latest developments of the INSPIRE Directive.
This conference provides an excellent opportunity to present Europe's INSPIRE Directive to the community and hear about the developments in national spatial data infrastructture (SDIs).
JRC-Ispra, 26 – 27 January 2016
On 26 and 27 January 2016, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission invited international experts for a two-day workshop in Ispra (Italy) in order to discuss data and service infrastructures for Citizen Science. The participants were challenged to
The JRC are co-organising DanubeHack 2.0 which aims to collect evidence about the possible added value generated on top of open (geo) data, related application programming interfaces (APIs) and software tools, identified within the Danube region.
The event will also explore the potential of citizen science and participation in creating and using value added services and applications.
This is a follow-up from the sucessful Danube Hack 2015.
This workshop, part of the INSPIRE and Geospatial World Forum conference, aims to bring together users and providers of data to discuss the ways in which more accessible and well documented information can act as a factor for sustainable economic growth and regional development, and contribute to the establishment of a Digital Single Market.
The summit will be organized by the Society for Geoinformatics (GfGI) and the International Society for Digital Earth (ISDE) together with the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), the GeoForschungsZentrum Potsdam (GFZ), and the JRC Institute for Environment and Sustinability (IES). The Summit will bring together leading scientists from Geoinformatics and Global Change research and will foster the exchange of ideas, cooperation between so-far disjoint scientific fields and provide time for in-depth discussion. Invited key note speakers will cover relevant topics in Geoinformatics, Global Change research, Spatial Data Infrastructures, Digital Earth initiatives, and Earth Observation activities as well as the interaction between these fields.
The European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2016 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences.
