GEO-CRADLE organised the 3rd South-Eastern Europe GEO Workshop

GEO-CRADLE organised the 3rd South-Eastern Europe GEO Workshop on the uptake of GEO and Copernicus, with emphasis on Climate Change, Food Security and Water Extremes, Raw Materials and Solar Energy which took place in Thessaloniki on 4 and 5 June 2018! The Workshop organised by the Interbalkan Environment Center [i-BEC] and the National Observatory of Athens [NOA],partners of GEO-CRADLE.

Attended by over 100 delegates representing research, private and public stakeholder from across the region, the workshop offered an opportunity for key actors across the Earth Observation [EO] value chain to share and exhange insights on the long-term actions that can help maximize the impact of EO and leverage EU investments. Your thought and inputs were very valuable to the GEO-CRADLE project team and their efforts to develop a roadmap for the improved implementation of GEO/GEOSS in the region.

GEO-CRADLE at the 3rd joint EARSeL/NASA LULC Workshop “Land-Use/Cover Change Drivers, Impacts and Sustainability within the Water-Energy-Food Nexus” on 11-12 July 2018 in Chania, Greece.

GEO-CRADLE partners from NOA, iBEC, CUT, TUBITAK, TAU and CEDARE participated the Mediterranean Regional Information Network (MedRIN) Kick-off Meeting in Chania, Greece, 13 & 14 July 2018. MedRIN will serve as a liaising network of remote sensing scientists working on land cover/land use change and stakeholders in the Mediterranean region.
GEO-CRADLE partners presented the the Soil Spectral Library which was created in the context of the GEO-CRADLE project in the region of Balkans, Middle East and North Africa, the SENSE system :Access to solar energy applications using EO data through GEO activities and THE “Photosynthetically active radiation climatology in Greece for optimal vineyard planning and exploitation”.
