Building stronger links for sharing environmental data

Topics: ,
What we know about Europe’s environment comes from data collected by countless data providers. The Belgian Presidency of the European Union and the European Environment Agency (EEA) organised a conference to facilitate the sharing of environmental information.

The conference ‘Sharing Environmental Information’, held between 29 November and 1 December in Brussels, brought together representatives from the EEA member and cooperating countries, EEA and the European Commission. The participants reflected on the implementation of the Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS).

In the conference conclusions, the participants encouraged the European Commission to publish the SEIS Implementation Plan as soon as possible. They  also emphasised the benefits of mutually supportive interaction between SEIS, Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe (INSPIRE) and Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) processes. The participants also recommended that SEIS, through the use of relevant Information Communication Technology (ICT), should be closely connected to the digital agenda for Europe as part of the EU strategy 2020.
