GSEU Official Launch
October 26 - 09:00 › 13:30| Brussels, Belgium
EuroGeoSurveys will be hosting the official launch of the Geological Service for Europe project on October 26th, 2022, at Coudenberg, Former Palace of Brussels.
The Geological Surveys of Europe have a strong collaborative network of experts, already in operation for over 50 years. In the last decade, this collaboration has been focused on the development of a European Geological Data Infrastructure – an open access platform of harmonised, borderless subsurface data that can inform sound science-based European policy in the themes of, for example, land use, urban development, geoenergy, mineral resources, water resources, coastal zone management, geological hazards, geoheritage, and more. This data infrastructure and the collaborative expertise that surrounds it, forms the heart of an envisaged future Geological Service for Europe.
Through a five-year Coordination and Support Action, GSEU, EuroGeoSurveys will deliver a plan for a sustainable Geological Service for Europe to be implemented beyond the 2027 project end. This service will serve European society and inform sound policy in water, energy, raw materials, hazards, and all areas that require subsurface data and expertise. Through this service, we will contribute to environmental sustainability and social well-being in Europe, supported by a powerful and comprehensive digital infrastructure.
