We are glad to announce the high-level event on GMES Governance (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security). It will take place in Brussels on Monday, 11th May 2009 with the title THE IMPACT OF GMES GOVERNANCE MODELS ON INDUSTRY and it is organised by the EARSC and EUROSPACE Associations in cooperation with the GMES Bureau and the European Economic and Social Committee, EESC.
GMES needs to evolve into full operational maturity. This requires a sustainable programme including long-term funding commitment; a suitable governance structure and a specific legislative and regulatory framework.The type of governance which will be adopted might have a strong impact on the structuring and future of the industry.
Recent challenges are to find new legislative and governance environment, new funding opportunities and to ensure appropriate business model, governance structure and longer-term financial sustainability as well as fostering downstream sector investments and pan-European level services.
This workshop will be an opportunity for all interested parties to expose possible governance models and to make a first evaluation of their impact on the industry. The presence and experience of all stakeholders is thus desirable to cover in the best way these issues in the workshop discussion. With this event Industry aims to accord recommendations of its vision on GMES Governance models.
