Summit 2019

  • Third NextGEOSS Summit

    1ST – 2ND July 2019, Pavilhão do Conhecimento – Lisbon, Portugal


Leveraging GEO applications for Sustainable Development Goals


This year’s summit will focus on how NextGEOSS can help you to build smart on Earth Observations.


NextGEOSS Platform Services facilitate the implementation of Earth Observation applications in all aspects: from data access, to results delivery including user management, cloud deployment and scalability, analytics, among others! At NextGEOSS Summit we will present more than 10 different success stories from our pilots.


NextGEOSS has opened its data and application catalogues to other projects to help defragment the European Earth Observation Resources leveraging European investment for the future by making these resources more findable and accessible. NextGEOSS Summit will be a great opportunity to identify and promote further collaborations, and discuss future sustainability of the unique capacities developed by the project!



The NextGEOSS Summit is free but for planning purposes it is necessary for you to register (see below). Please, register today!


Hope to see you soon!


NextGEOSS offers FREE 1/2 DAY TRAINING 2nd July after the Summit!
