Call: European data hub of the GEOSS information system

Programme
Type of Fund Action programme
Description of programme
"Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials"

This Subprogramme aims to achieve a resource- and water-efficient economoy and society that is also resilient to climate change. Furthermore, it seeks to promote the protection and sustainable management of natural resources and ecosystems. Lastly, the Programme also supports the sustainable supply and use of raw materials, in order to meet the needs of a growing global population within the sustainable limits of the planet's natural resources and eco-systems.

Title Greening the economy
Description of call
"Greening the economy"

The call Greening the economy consists of 29 topics addressing the priority areas of climate services, moving towards a low-carbon Europe, nature-based solutions for territorial resilience, water, raw materials, Earth observation and cultural heritage forsustainable growth. All activities funded under this call should as far as possible use data resulting from or made available through different initiatives of the European Commission. The innovative element is the opportunity to use the tools Pilot on Open Research Data which aims to improve and maximise access to and re-use of research data generated by projects OR  Data Management Plans (DMPs) detailing what data the project will generate, whether and how it will be exploited or made accessible for verification and re-use, and how it will be curated and preserved.

Specific topics for the calls:

  • Exploiting the added value of climate services
  • Integrated European regional modelling and climate prediction system
  • Climate services market research
  • Towards a robust and comprehensive greenhouse gas verification system
  • A 1.5 million year look into the past for improving climate predictions
  • Pathways towards the decarbonisation and resilience of the European economy in the timeframe 2030-2050 and beyond
  • Coordinating and supporting research and innovation actions on the decarbonisation of the EU economy
  • Large-scale demonstrators on nature-based solutions for hydro-meteorological risk reduction
  • Operationalising insurance value of ecosystems
  • Multi-stakeholder dialogue platform to promote innovation with nature to address societal challenges
  • Supporting international cooperation activities on water
  • Novel in-situ observation systems
  • Coordination of citizens' observatories initiatives
  • European data hub of the GEOSS information system
  • Cultural heritage as a driver for sustainable growth
  • Innovative financing, business and governance models for adaptive re-use of cultural heritage
  • Support to confirmed Presidency events (conferences) – Malta, United Kingdom, Estonia
  • Support to confirmed Presidency event (conference) in Slovakia
  • Macro-economic and societal benefits from creating new markets in a circular economy
  • Pre-commercial procurement on soil decontamination
  • Preparing for pre-commercial procurement (PCP) and/or public procurement of innovative solutions (PPI) in support of climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials
  • Transformations to sustainability
  • Framework Partnership Agreement supporting Joint Actions towards a sustainable green economy in Europe and beyond

European data hub of the GEOSS information system
Description of call
"European data hub of the GEOSS information system"

As part of its 2015 strategic targets GEO has agreed to achieve sustained operation, continuity and interoperability of the GEOSS information system that facilitates access to, and use of Earth observation resources made available by the global GEO community. However the evolution of the current GEOSS information system indicates that in parallel to this overarching goal there is a need also to strengthen the access to Earth Observation at regional level so that it becomes easier to harvest, consolidate and exploit those data at global level. The specific challenge under this topic is therefore to overcome the fragmentation of the European landscape of existing public and private Earth observation data infrastructures and to maximise their combined exploitation in the light of the evolving demand and supply of Earth observations in Europe. In order to meet this challenge a European data hub of the GEOSS information system should be developed taking into account the global trend towards more open data policies, the availability of new big data technologies and the requirements for the development of the European digital economy. The main function for such a hub would consist in harvesting available resources from relevant GEOSS data infrastructures in Europe and in particular from the distributed Copernicus data infrastructures. Developing such a hub would allow maximising and leveraging on past Community investments to support the GEOSS Common Infrastructure, in particular the broker technology, developed in the framework of several FP7 research projects. This would also help retain ownership in the evolution of this IT technology, which is at the cornerstone of the GEOSS.
