The JRC and GMES 1998 to 2008
•
“The information requirements associated with global
environment security and the capabilities of satellite
observing systems must converge”
•
Baveno Group 19th May 1998
•
“At a time when command of information has geo-strategic
implications, GMES aims at providing the EU with the
capacity to pursue its interests and to effectively address
today’s challenges and threats in a wide variety of policy
areas”
•
Establishing a GMES capacity by 2008 COM (2004) 65 final
•
“JRC has technical and scientific experience in the field of
GMES with which it wishes to support the Bureau”
•

JRC’s role in EO
• Internal EC function in a legal context; neutrality, confidentiality
and subsidiarity
– EU forest fire occurrence, control of farmers’ declarations
• Customising external services’ output to meet EC Services’
requirements
– Crisis response, situation awareness
• R&D concerning new areas of operation
– Global dimensions, GMES for Africa
• Transfer of mature services to external operators
– Monitoring illegal discharge from ships
• Direct support to the GMES Bureau
– Bureau’s work plan, Working Group processes, strategic orientation

GEO European Project Workshop, 3-4 September 2008
An example: JRC activities for Africa
• Geographic Information Systems installed in national
parks in West and Central Africa
– park protection and management
• Forest resource management centre in Kinshasa
– sustainable forest exploitation
• Computer-based document and map management
in EU Delegations
– project identification, implementation and monitoring
• Access to information, technology and training
– strengthens national capacities

JRC’s contribution to EO: some conclusions
•
Space technology underpinning decision-making in key EU policies
•
Building operational uses of Environment and Security information in the
public policy-making domain
•
Environment and Security research – benefits of advances at JRC
•
Nurturing networks and partnerships
•
Fostering the Global dimension
•
GMES services – a potential supporting role for JRC to develop and
validate pre-operational services
•
Securing the supply side – an issue for GMES security

JRC is the Technical Coordinator of the INSPIRE Directive
•The INSPIRE Directive lays down general rules to establish an Infrastructure for
Spatial Information in Europe for the purposes of Community environmental policies
and policies or activities which may have an impact on the environment
•This infrastructure shall build upon infrastructures for spatial information established
and operated by the Member States.
•Which data/services?
–Existing spatial data held by or on
behalf of a public authority operating
down to the lowest level of government
when laws or regulations require their
collection or dissemination.
GEO European Project Workshop, 3-4 September 2008
INSPIRE Components
• 1. Metadata
• 2. Interoperability of spatial data sets and services
• 3. Network services (discovery, view, download, invoke)
– Made available trough the European geo-portal
• 4. Data and Service sharing (policy)
• 5. Coordination and measures for
Monitoring and Reporting
•

GEO European Project Workshop, 3-4 September 2008
JRC in GEO/GEOSS
•
JRC have been active in the inter-governmental GEO and the development of GEOSS
since its beginning
– Attending Plenary Meetings and related EO Summits as member of the EC delegation
– Participating in activities of the GEO European High Level Working Group
– Contributing to the preparation and negotiation of the “10-year Implementation Plan”
(2005), to the “Report On Progress” and to the “First 100 steps to GEOSS” (2007),..
•
JRC is heavily committed to GEO through
– its participation to GEOSS Committees
• as co-chair of the Architecture and Data Committee and member of the Initial
Operating Capability Task Force (A.Annoni)
• as co-chair of the User Interface Committee (F.Pignatelli)
• as active member in Science and Technology Committee
•
JRC participates in GEOSS tasks
– Through institutional actions and activities
• INSPIRE, MONDE, TREES-3, SOLO, PROCAS, AGRI4CAST, SOIL, FOREST, ..)
– Through participation in FP7 European Projects
• AEGOS, EuroGEOSS, GIGAS, DEVCoast, GEOLAND, …
