EuroGEO is the regional coordination mechanism that aims to consolidate and coordinate activities throughout Europe that contribute to GEO (Group on Earth Observations) initiatives.

Since EuroGEO’s inception, the European landscape has significantly changed. Firstly, at EU level, with the implementation of the EU Space Programme, which provides the necessary infrastructure, data, and technological advancements, whilst EuroGEO coordinates and integrates these resources to address global and regional challenges through GEO work programme activities. And secondly, at GEO level, with the adoption of the ‘post-2025’ GEO work programme, which shifts from “Earth observation” to “Earth Intelligence” and from a focus on services to equity, in order to bridge the global information gaps.

At this critical juncture, this year’s EuroGEO workshop, which will take place in Krakow from 8 to 10 October, aims to invite and mobilise the EO community to reposition EuroGEO in the light of both the evolving European landscape and GEO strategy.

This ‘new EuroGEO era’ will strive to ‘Coordinate, Combine, Cooperate’ with the national and European EO ecosystems, across different sectors and domains, to create relevant and impactful contributions to GEO, and harness the benefits of international cooperation for the benefit of the European EO sector.
