EuroGEO Workshop 2023

EO4EU will be presented, with a dedicated session and a poster, at the EuroGEO Workshop 2023 held from 2-4 October in Bolzano, Italy.

The session titled "Building the Green Deal Data Space in a way that contributes to GEO," chaired by Joan Maso from CREAF and Paolo Mazzetti from CNR, seeks to explore the symbiotic relationship between the Green Deal Data Space (GDDS) and the Group on Earth Observations (GEO). With specific objectives in mind, the session aims to gain a comprehensive understanding of the GDDS through current use cases and consolidate diverse perspectives into a coherent blueprint. Participants will delve into how this blueprint can be effectively integrated into GEO's Work Program and the GEO platform, ensuring seamless collaboration and alignment of efforts. Additionally, the session provides a platform for discussing ideas concerning GDDS governance and lays out future plans for its development.

The outcome of the session will be a set of recommendations presented in a concise policy document. The presentations during the session will showcase innovative projects such as:

  • The GREAT project, Paolo Mazzetti (CNR)
  • Integrating standard nodes in the GDDS - AD4GD, Joan Maso (CREAF)
  • The EarthServer Data Space: Analysis-Ready AI-Cubes for the Green Deal, Peter Baumann (Jacobs University)
  • FAIRiCUBE, Kathi Schleidt (Datacove)
  • Simplifying access to biodiversity data for rapid, repeatable analysis across large areas (B3), Quentin Groom (Botanic Garden, Meise)
  • The Open Earth Monitor data processing for the Green Deal Data Space, Tom Hengl (OpenGeoHUB)


Use Cases (already showcasing some potential links with GEO)

  • WMO use case, Washington Otieno (WMO), Enrico Boldrini (CNR)
  • GOS4M. Mercury observations use case, Nicola Pirrone (CNR)
  • The Climate Change EIFFEL pilots: pursuing Green Deal goals and potentially enriching the Green Deal Data Space, Orestis Speyer
  • The EO4EU use case, Stathes Hadjiefthymiades (UOA)
  • The EuroGEO perspective, Marco Minghini (JRC)

The session will conclude with a round table discussion, moderated by Joan Masó (CREAF), enabling fruitful exchanges among participants and fostering collaboration to strengthen the relationship between GDDS and GEO, ultimately advancing both initiatives' goals in Earth observation and environmental conservation.

Practical Information

The workshop will take place in Bolzano/Bozen, Italy, from Monday 2nd to Wednesday 4th October 2023 at Eurac Research. Additionally, EuroGEO 2023 is jointly organized with the Open-Earth-Monitor (OEMC) Global Workshop 2023, scheduled from Wednesday 4th to Friday 6th October at the same venue. Participants have the opportunity to register for both workshops, immersing themselves in five days of science and technology discussions, workshops, hackathons, and social events geared towards shaping policies and promoting a better understanding of our Earth and its environment.
