Logo EuroGeo

The main goal is to strengthen the use of in-situ data in support of EU environmental and climate policies, in line with GEO priorities and the European node EuroGEO. EuroGeo's specific objectives are to:

  • Coordinate, harvest synergies, and facilitate knowledge exchange across GEO, EuroGEO, and Copernicus’ in-situ data sharing and management activities;
  • Collate, analyse and store information on in-situ data quality requirements as expressed by EuroGEO selected applications, as well as GEO Flagships and Initiatives;
  • Develop standard processes to facilitate the discovery, reuse, management and curation of relevant in-situ data through a series of showcases in the field of climate adaptation;
  • Provide strategic and technical input to relevant GEO partners in view of reinforcing the impact of European contributions to GEO and, in particular, the EuroGEO initiative.
