The INSPIRE Conference is at hand: from the 18th to the 21st of September in Antwerp INSPIRE stakeholders meet under the heading of “Make it work together”.

The Biodiversity & Area Management Cluster meeting will be held on

Thursday September 20  - 10:30 to 11:00 at the INSPIRE (European Commission) stand.

Don't miss the chance to get in touch with other cluster members, share experiences, good practices and implementation issues. We will as well have a look at the renewed Thematic Clusters platform and see how to make the most of new functionalities e.g. 2 new cross cutting clusters, content re-classification, better alignment with new policy requirements (Priority datasets of e-Reporting, INSPIRE MIWP Activities etc)...
