An ICT strategy driven by SEIS requirements
• To simplify the collection, exchange and use of data
– From centralized reporting to access and sharing across distributed
interoperable nodes
• To improve quality and availability of information
– Up-to-date information on current and emerging environmental challenges
• To improve interoperability
– Use of open standards
• To reduce workloads
– Streamlining, cost-efficiency
A CRUCIAL
MOMENT
FOR
EUROPE
EEA work programme 2014-2018
1. To be the prime source of knowledge at European level
informing the implementation of European and national
environment and climate policies;
2. To be a leading knowledge centre on the knowledge needed
for supporting long term transition challenges and
objectives;
3. To be the lead organisation at European level facilitating
knowledge-sharing and capacity -building in the field of
environment and climate change.

A deeper understanding of challenges
The EU 7th Environment Action Plan
Living well, within the limits of our planet.
Increased complexity of problem definition, analysis, and response.
EU Environment Action Programme 2020
The 7th EAP focusses on three thematic priority objectives:
• ‘To protect, conserve and enhance the EU’s natural capital’
• ‘To turn the EU into a resource-efficient, green and competitive
low-carbon economy’
• ‘To safeguard EU citizens from environment-related pressures
and risks to health and well-being’.

Goal - Improve content, accessibility and use of European-level
environmental information.
Achieve by 2018 - Measurable uptake of EEA findings, and the timely
and reliable delivery of outputs.
Improving data sharing and data flows
=> Structured Implementation and Information Frameworks (SIIFs)
Streamlining environmental indicators
=> Sharing European and National State of the Environment (SENSE)

recalibration of environmental policy
Achieve by 2018 - Prompt delivery of SOER2015 and annual
indicator reports, and measurable recognition in the 7EAP evaluation
process.
