EuroGEOSS: Tailoring Earth Observation services to Europe's needs

EuroGEOSS is a new regional initiative in the GEO Work Programme 2017-2019. It is the European component of the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) with a focus on coordination and scaling up user-driven applications being developed in Europe.

EuroGEOSS is supported by the GEO European countries and participating organisations and the European Commission.

This initiative aims to improve user uptake of Earth Observation data and improve forecasting capabilities for sound decision-making by governments for Europe’s benefit.

EuroGEOSS will coordinate, combine and seek cooperation and synergies within existing European Earth Observation assets and initiatives, with Copernicus as a major element and the focus on the Sustainable Development Goals and GEO’s Societal Benefit Areas.

Government decision makers on all levels, researchers/scientists, private-sector companies and citizens will benefit from EuroGEOSS.
