Networking Workshop: Addressing GEO-CRADLE regional challenges - Access to raw materials

Organized as a part of the GEO-CRADLE project (Coordinating and integRating state-of-the-art Earth Observation Activities in the regions of North Africa, Middle East, and Balkans and Developing Links with GEO related initiatives towards GEOSS), this networking event is aimed at the whole Moroccan geological and geoscientific community and stakeholders, and in particular, at in-situ network operators.

GEO-CRADLE supports the development of the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) that is run by the Group on Earth Observation (GEO), of which Morocco is a member state, and the implementation of the Copernicus flagship programme in the regions of North Africa, Middle East, and Balkans. GEOSS and Copernicus bring together and combine information on the state of our planet with the aid of both satellites and terrestrial instruments (such as geological cartography and mineral resources data sets), to foster environmental protection and economic growth.

The workshop will provide opportunities to exchange information and share best practices in using Earth Observation (EO) services to facilitate access to raw materials, thus helping to identify a solutions driven roadmap to enhance innovation in the geo-information sector.

The Moroccan Ministry of Energy, Mines, Water and the Environment and GEO-CRADLE have the pleasure to invite you to attend the workshop.

More information will follow in the next weeks.
