The INSPIRE CONFERENCE 2021 took place end of October 2021. The presentations and recordings are now available (https://inspire.ec.europa.eu/conference2021/presentations resp. https://inspire.ec.europa.eu/conference2021 and “Recordings”).
INSPIRE has entered a new milestone as the European Commission’s recent focus on the green and digital transformation holds the potential to make it a key tool for the successful (environmental) data sharing in Europe. JRC’s Science for Policy Report “INSPIRE – A Public Sector Contribution to the European Green Deal Data Space” was published, see https://europa.eu/!8qH67V summarises the main developments of the pan-European INSPIRE SDI, AS well it emphasizes that “traditional SDIs should evolve from complex and highly specialised frameworks to more sustainable, flexible and agile data ecosystems, lowering the entry level far beyond geospatial specialists and welcoming an increased participation from less traditional stakeholders (e.g. open source software communities, standardisation bodies and early adopters)”.
Hence new work items for our commission are in front of the door.
