The ELISE Geo Knowledge Base Service aims to raise awareness of location interoperability by engaging its community in sharing experiences and knowledge. As part of our knowledge transfer activities, a series of webinars took place between April 2020 and April 2021.

The purpose of the webinars was to analyse new topics and trends concerning the location domain and provide information on state-of-the-art solutions and technologies that support innovation and digital transformation.

The report "Location interoperability, as innovation and digital transformation. Lessons learned from ELISE Action webinar series" is a summary of this series of 10 webinars. For each webinar you will find an overview providing context, purpose, development, reporting and conclusions.

The webinars were grouped according to three general categories: data exchange (2 webinars), technology (6 webinars) and public services (2 webinars). In total, 490 stakeholders participated in the role of participants or guest speakers.

The report concludes that the webinars were a succesful format and should be continued. It introduced a wide range of topics to stakeholders and supported the objective of the ELISE Action in building an informed community. 

The following table provides a glance of the webinars described in the report. For more information about them and access to slides and videos please click on each link
