Governance Workshop on Global Monitoring for Environment and Security
Roger Longhorn forwarded the following through the GSDI Legal Econ Digest:
Governance Workshop on Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES)
The GMES Governance workshop organised by the EARSC and EUROSPACE Associations in cooperation with the GMES Bureau and the European Economic and Social Committee, EESC held on May 11 in Brussels, was successful in that it lived up to the main objective exposing possible governance models and making a first evaluation of their impact on the industry.
One of the workshop’s main strengths, warmly acknowledged by speakers and attendees alike, proved to be its relevance to the representatives from the EO industry community and institutions who were there to discuss, between others, topics as dialogue mechanisms, long-term funding commitment, specific legislative and regulatory framework and governance structures and challenges.
The Workshop’s speakers’ presentations are available on the EARSC website at the following link: http://www.earsc.eu/news/presentations-gmes-governance-workshop-may-11-2009-brussels
