The INSPIRE Conference 2017 - "INSPIRE a digital Europe: Thinking out of the box" - will be held next 4-8 September 2017, in Kehl (Germany) and Strasbourg (France).
Organized by the European Commission, EC Directorate-General for the Environment, DG ENV, in cooperation with the French Ministry of Environment, Energy and Marine Affairs and the German Federal Ministry of Interior, the event focuses on those relevant issues that can push all over Europe the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive, making INSPIRE a driver and an operational tool supporting the environmental protection.
Driven by the growing needs of society for more and better information and decision-making on what happens "where", "when" and "why" the EU Member States, EEA/EFTA and neighboring Candidate Accession Countries have been working over the past decade together with the European Commission and agencies to build up a pan-European infrastructure to manage and share more efficiently geospatial data.
This effort has largely been leveraged through the implementation of the "Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community, INSPIRE Directive" which celebrates this year the 10th anniversary of its entry into force. Considerable progress has been made in 10 years. The availability of this data collected and managed by a large number of public services with responsibilities in many different thematic domains opens the door for more widely reaping the economic and societal benefits of this digital resource of public sector information.
The conference this year will contribute to the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive by 2020 and serves to demonstrate the potential of the European Spatial Data Infrastructure resulting from INSPIRE for the environment and the EU Digital society. At the conference public and private sector stakeholders will meet and discuss the progress reached so far, discover new opportunities, and further examine possibilities for accelerating the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive.
