LINKVIT at INSPIRE 2014, Aalborg (DK), 16-20 June 2014

Aalborg (DK), 16-20 June 2014

Workshop:  ”A clustering approach to eENVironmental Services for advanced applications and  capacity building within  INSPIRE and SEIS”


A LINKVIT session is organised within a clustering workshop at the INSPIRE 2014 Conference, with the aim to fostering a common approach for providing training in the different thematic Communities operating in the context of INSPIRE and related GI Directives.

The LINKVIT project has in fact developed the concept of the Training Framework that supports, with eLearning tools, the development of the necessary capacities and knowledge to implement INSPIRE and to develop a SEIS.

The connection with the LINKVIT Training Framework contributes to enhance the training offer through an organization of the vocational training about GI & INSPIRE in public and private sector, also as regards an easy access to (standardized and validated at EU level) training.

The LINKVIT session emphasises the horizontal training aspects that are common within other European projects focused on interoperability in the context of INSPIRE:

  • eENVplus, aiming to unlock huge amounts of environmental data, managed by the involved national/regional environment agencies and other public and private environmental stakeholders, through the integration and harmonisation of existing services.
  • LIFE+IMAGINE, which will exploit the eENVplus infrastructure to implement two scenarios on integrated coastal zone management based upon environmental analysis and risk assessment methodologies.
  • GeoSmartCity, which establish a re-usable cross-platform and an open hub able to publish open geographic information and to provide specialized services based on open standards.
