On May 7 and 8 2012 the sixth GEO European Project’s Workshop will take place in Rome. The GEO initiative is aimed to increase the accessibility and vailability of Earth Observation data through the development of a Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) to be delivered by 2015. GEO now includes 87 countries, the European Commission and 64 intergovernmental, international, and regional participating organisations. Europe, represented by the European Commission, is one of the leaders (co-chairs) of the GEO initiative together with the US, China, and South-Africa. This GEO European Projects’ Workshop aims at supporting this leadership. The provisional topics for discussion at this workshop include the recently adopted Work Plan for the period 2012-2015, the future of GEO beyond 2015 and the GEOSS Data-CORE (GEOSS Data Collection of Open Resources for Everyone). European projects and other interested players will have a platform to give their input to the future role of Europe in GEO. In addition, the workshop will provide an opportunity for European projects to showcase their activities in the domain of Earth Observation, giving a high visibility to the European actions conducted in the context of GEO.
