HELM: Harmonised European Land Monitoring

HELM is a Coordination Action which has responded to the call FP7-Space 2010.1.1-06, Coordination of national activities for land monitoring in the frame of the program for Global Monitoring for Environment and Security – GMES

HELM has started in January 2011. The project website will be online soon.

HELM is a network of authorities concerned with land monitoring across Europe. It will initiate a move to increase the maturity of European land monitoring along five sequential steps:

  • Mutual interest in achieving reciprocal knowledge.
  • Shared visions and planning for the future.
  • Joint activities by taking on tasks collectively.
  • Alignment of national systems involving the mutual adaptation of data interpretation methods and of the timing of data gathering.
  • Lasting integration and combining data across all administrative levels.

COSMOS Matchmaking Event, Sofia, Bulgaria, 18th of March 2011

ReSAC – partner in the organization of the COSMOS Matchmaking Event, Sofia, Bulgaria, 18th of March 2011

On 18th of March 2011 the National FP7 Space Contact Points network COSMOS is offering a matchmaking event related with the upcoming 5th Space call of FP7. The event is organized in the frame of the 2nd Earth Observation-GMES Operational Capacity Workshop and is supported by the Bulgarian Information Office for GMES (BIOG).

The main objective of the matchmaking event is to create an opportunity for R&D institutes, universities, SMEs, industry and other organizations working in the field of Space: GMES Service and Space Component. Interested organizations can present proposal ideas, their competencies or their field of work via posters and oral presentations. This aims at identifying common interest with other players and thus finally at submitting joint proposals under the next FP7 Space call.

All the presentations and posters will be published on the Bulgarian Information Office for GMES (BIOG) website as well as on the NCP network COSMOS website after approval by the authors.

We are looking forward to welcome you in the COSMOS Matchmaking Event – Bulgaria 2011.
