The EuroGEO 2022 workshop, held December 7-9 in Athens, has shared the last contributions from European members of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), a partnership composed of more than 100 national governments, over 100 organizations and the European Commission. Under the title “Towards an integrated and convergent EuroGEO”, GEO anticipates a future in which decisions and actions for the benefit of humanity are based on coordinated, comprehensive and sustained observations of the Earth. Therefore, among the objectives of workshop, the search for synergies between projects and initiatives, the identification of opportunities to work under a nexus approach, the design of an effective regional governance that promotes national mechanisms or the sharing of global (G)EO trends stand out.
For its part, SusTunTech as a proactive European player, has not only actively participated in some of the forums, but also intervened in the meeting, specifically on Thursday, December 8, through a poster exhibition. In this way, Lohitzune Solabarrieta (AZTI) has presented SusTunTech showing the participants a poster with the FAIR ocean data sets from fishing vessels in the SusTunTech project, as well as an audiovisual demonstration of SmartMarineView, the oceanographic solution integrated in the Project.
This edition was organized by the European Commission, the General Secretariat for Research and Innovation of the Greek Ministry and the Greek GEO Office.
