Folder Agenda

Taking place over two days, the workshop is divided into sessions. The morning of the first day will be in plenary, with three parallel sessions foreseen in the afternoon. The parallel sessions will have some focus on societal challenges, in particular marine and climate change as well as considering technical issues related to GEOSS architecture. The second day will focus on connecting European initiatives and linking with stakeholders, including the private sector.
