EuroGEO Workshop 2023

The EuroGEO 2023 workshop brings together and coordinates activities in Europe that contribute to the initiatives of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO). EuroGEO 2023 is being co-organised with the Open-Earth-Monitor (OEMC) 2023 global workshop, which will take place from Wednesday 4 to Friday 6 October at the same venue.

The new strategy moves from “Earth observation” to “Earth Intelligence” and shifts the focus from services to equity to bridge the global information gaps. This year’s EuroGEO workshop provides the opportunity to position European activities in the light of the new GEO strategy and supports the coordination and interlinking of actions at national and European level and across sectors and domains to create relevant and impactful contributions to GEO.

Frédéric Huynh, Director of the Data Terra Research Infrastructure, will be present at the workshop to talk about Data Terra’s products and services. Indeed, Data Terra is strongly involved in several international programmes as well as EuroGeo. Find out more about the many international programmes in which Data Terra is involved in the dedicated “International Projects” webpage.


The objectives of the event are to:

  • Position EuroGEO with view to the new GEO strategy.
  • Identify and exploit synergies across national and Eu projects and initiatives.
  • Support a nexus approach to address the triple crisis of pollution-climate-biodiversity.
  • Create a dialogue among scientists, policy makers and end-users to support the co-design of EO based tools, knowledge, and policies.

GEO is an intergovernmental partnership that aims to improve the availability, access and use of open Earth observations, including satellite imagery, remote sensing and in situ data, to influence policy and decision-making in a wide range of sectors.

It is at a crossroads in defining its post-25 strategy (currently under public consultation), which is due to be adopted in November 2023 at the GEO ministerial summit in Cape Town (ZA).
