Enlargement and Integration Workshop on Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI) and Open Data in Central and Eastern Europe.
Belgrade, 04 November
The workshop took place in Belgrade on 04 November and was co-organised by the JRC, the Republic Geodetic Authority of Serbia, the World Bank, and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). The workshop was the central event of a three-day programme dedicated to topics including many aspects related to the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive, as well as the macro-regional data infrastructure which is being established through JRC-led Danube Reference Data and Services Infrastructure (DRDSI) project.
The event brought together leading experts in both open data and spatial data infrastructures from across Europe to discuss potential synergies and to find the means to establish joint activities through projects.
The morning session presented good practices from the Danube region and beyond, ranging from regional to national and international scales. The afternoon session was interactive and went into further detail on possible pilots that would aim to bring together data users and providers, helping to unlock and better utilise data in the region.
