First NextGEOSS Summit

  • First NextGEOSS Summit

    22ND June, Finnish Meteorological Institute – Helsinki, Finland


The NextGEOSS project builds upon the existing GEOSS, evolving the system of systems where Earth Observation data, information and models (the resources) are easy to discover, access and use – and we’ll give you a sneak preview of the early work.

The evolution will be driven by the NextGEOSS pilots (introduced at the start of the meeting) and your European community requirements. This is where you come in! We would like to hear from YOU, what YOU believe GEOSS should adapt for the European community, including the private sector!

More importantly, we would like to here from YOU what you believe GEOSS should be.

To facilitate the dialogue, we have put together an agenda that is a mix of information and opportunities to share thoughts and ideas in round table discussions and breakout sessions.


We invite you to complete the following survey regarding the 1st NextGEOSS Summit:

Summit Survey

This evaluation survey is anonymous. It aims at evaluating the engagement of the different projects and communities and improve  the organisation of the next summits to better meet the global expectations.

Thank you for your collaboration.
