The GEO-CRADLE Networking Platform is now on line!

The new platform provides a wealth of information on key Earth Observation (EO) stakeholders from North Africa, Middle East and the Balkans. The users can navigate through the profiles of stakeholders and be informed on the existing networks, capacities, skills, etc. in the combined region. Whilst the platform is primarily targeting stakeholders from the region, organisations from other countries are invited to become part of the network. Interested stakeholders can easily complete their profile by providing their credentials and filling in a quick survey. The survey is split in five main sections: Contact Details, Activity Focus, Capacities, National Activities, Engagement in GEO-CRADLE.
