The 2015 INSPIRE – Geospatial World Forum Conference
Global and EU policies need better information. They call for smart, innovative and sustainable solutions to more efficiently use our resources, for protecting our environment and for dealing with risks and pressures such as those resulting from climate change.

Geospatial technologies (GIS, GPS, Remote Sensing, sensor webs etc.) and information services provide us with essential data on what happens where. European and globally nations, invest in programmes such as Copernicus, Galileo and the Group on Earth Observations, GEO System of Systems to build up this capacity.

Geospatial technologies are used increasingly to monitor the environment, for guiding policies and for the 'smart' implementation of plans and programmes based on the best geospatial knowledge available. But they are also part of everyday decision making, varying from routines like navigating to work, to spatial planning or dealing with emergencies, from saving lives to saving money. This has placed the geospatial technology sector in the top ten of the most rapidly growing employment sectors worldwide.

Spatial Data Infrastructures, such as those resulting from the implementation of the INSPIRE (Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community) directive and many actions under the EU Digital Agenda, provide the framework for data policies and access and interoperability arrangements which together enable the combined use of geospatial data and all other kinds of data and information linked to location.

For that reason, DG Environment and the INSPIRE partners in the JRC and the EEA are joining forces with the Geospatial World Forum Conference. The 2015 INSPIRE‐Geospatial World Forum Conference will focus on the convergence of policies, geospatial technologies and practices. It will bring together policy and industry leaders with practitioners and clients of geospatial technologies and INSPIRE. It will provide a forum for interaction, for building public‐privatepartnerships, between those having the need for information in a wide variety of policy areas (environment, transport, agriculture etc.) and those capable for delivering and managing it through geospatial technologies and spatial data infrastructures such as INSPIRE.
