INSPIRE Conference 2014


INSPIRE Conference 2014: INSPIRE for good governance, 16-20 June 2014. Aalborg, Denmark

Seven years have past since INSPIRE was adopted as the EU's legal framework establishing the infrastructure for spatial information in Europe serving policies and activities having an impact on the environment. During this period the framework of technical specifications necessary to underpin an interoperable infrastructure has been completed, and a major effort has taken place to implement the Directive in the Member States. It is now time for the mid-term evaluation to assess how well we are doing, and whether we are still on the right track. This conference comes therefore at a crucial stage to report on progress and get feedback from all the stakeholders involved.

Topics for which contributions are sought include, but are not limited to:

  • INSPIRE supporting the implementation of environment law
  • INSPIRE and the integration of environmental concern in other policy areas
  • INSPIRE and climate change policy
  • INSPIRE in specific environmental policy areas (e.g. marine, arctic, freshwater, noise, air …)
  • INSPIRE for addressing environment-related threats to health
  • INSPIRE to reduce environmental risk and management of natural disasters
  • INSPIRE for boosting sustainable resource-efficiency and low-carbon growth
  • INSPIRE supporting urban and rural sustainability (Smart cities, Smart rural)
  • INSPIRE and public participation for social equity and environmental justice
  • INSPIRE for energy efficiency
  • INSPIRE for innovation and growth in the private sector and economy
  • INSPIRE for education and research
  • INSPIRE + Open Data + Copernicus + Social and Sensor Networks = Big Data?
