4-5 September, Kehl Germany

6-8 September, Strasbourg France

The "DIRECTIVE 2007/2/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL establishing an Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community ", better known as INSPIRE, celebrates this year the 10th anniversary of its entry into force.

A decade of implementation efforts by the EU, EFTA/EEA and Candidate Accession Countries is resulting in a growing online availability of a wide range of spatial data.

This data is not only put to use for protecting the environment. It also finds its application in many activities in our digital society related to e-Government, transport, agriculture, navigation, regional development, energy, health, safety & security, research and e-Commerce just to name a few.
Environmental issues do not stop at borders and neither does the Digital Single Market where spatial data should be able to flow without obstacles to fully reach its potential for sustainable growth.

This makes INSPIRE – as an example of a European Interoperability Framework and digital infrastructure - more than ever relevant for both the environment, the European Digital Economy and society in general.

By organizing the INSPIRE 2017 conference together, the governments of Germany and France, in partnership with the European Commission want to emphasize this message while underlining also the importance of working together across borders, and across policy and economic sectors to make this sharing of spatial data even more a reality for the wider benefit of our citizens, businesses and environment.

At the INSPIRE Conference 2017 more than 1.000 participants – policy makers, public and private sector users and producers of data, services and application, INSPIRE experts and students - are expected from all EU countries and beyond to learn, demonstrate, network and generally contribute to the debate and implementation of INSPIRE.

The conference will offer two days of workshops and three days of plenaries, thematic sessions, a poster session, a commercial exhibition and social events.

Its success will depend on your participation and contribution as the major stakeholder of the event.
