EuroGEO Workshop 2023

EuroGEO brings together and coordinates activities in Europe that contribute to the initiatives of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO). GEO is at a crossroad with defining its post-25 strategy (currently under public consultation) which is planned to be adopted in November 2023 at the GEO ministerial summit in Cape Town, South Africa. The new strategy moves from “Earth observation” to “Earth Intelligence” and shifts the focus from services to equity to bridge the global information gaps.

This year’s EuroGEO workshop offered the chance to position European initiatives in the light of the new GEO strategy and promotes the coordination and interlinking of initiatives at the national and European levels, as well as across sectors and domains, in order to produce contributions to GEO that are pertinent and significant.

The objectives of the workshop were to:

  • Position EuroGEO with view to the new GEO strategy;
  • Identify and exploit synergies across national and EU projects and initiatives;
  • Support a nexus approach to address the triple pollution-climate-biodiversity crises;
  • Create a dialogue among scientists, policy makers and end-users to support the co-design of EO based tools, knowledge, and policies.
