Summit 2018

  • Second NextGEOSS Summit

    14TH June, GEO/WMO Building – Geneva, Switzerland



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. It adds cloud facilities to benefit from cloud scalability to process more data over bigger territories, on longer time series, building bridges between communities and technology. The Second NextGEOSS Summit will showcase that NextGEOSS is making it happen.


The evolution is driven by the NextGEOSS pilots, which is described on NextGEOSS website  and your European community requirements.


This is where you come in! The NextGEOSS beta release is there,  meaning that the project is now ready to on board new pilots, maybe yours, to engage your community  at an early stage allowing impact on the NextGEOSS design.


More importantly, we would like to hear from YOU what you believe GEOSS should be to help us align future works with the best up-to-date vision.


To facilitate the dialogue, we have put together an agenda that reports on the status of the project’s activities putting the user in the core of the process, bridging communities needs and technology to re-inforce the engagement of communities, stimulating  opportunities to share thoughts and ideas in round table discussions and breakout sessions.


We need you to engage now !
