CREODIAS at EuroGEOSS Sprint-to-Ministerial meeting

EuroGEOSS is Europe's part of the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS). It will allow Europe to position itself as global force in Earth observation thanks to the vast knowledge gained through running the Copernicus programme and others. GEOSS is a worldwide system which aims to use earth observation data to improve the lives of citizens and help governments make good, evidence-based decisions.

GEOSS is operated by the Group on Earth Observations (GEO). GEO is a partnership of more than 100 national governments, 100 participating organisations and the European Commission. GEO implements the GEOSS, the global Earth observation system of sytems. It envisions a future where decisions and measures for the benefit of humankind are informed by coordinated, comprehensive and sustained Earth observations. To implement this vision, GEO has divided the world into five regional areas. Europe is one of them and EuroGEOSS is the framework to combine the contributions of European GEO members.

The first meeting of EuroGEOSS took place in Brussels, from 12th to 13th of February 2019. CREODIAS delegation was present and took part in the dedicated DIAS presentions for interested parties.
