GEO virtual symposium 2020

The GEO Virtual Symposium took place on 15-19 June as a set of interactive webinars and virtual discussions. More than 1600 participants registered to the 14 sessions covering a range of topics – from Earth Observations for COVID-10 response and recovery to the emergence of advanced technologies – offering great opportunities for the GEO community to transform data and information into decision-support knowledge.  

DG Research and Innovation chaired the session Focus on Impact: Regional GEOs. The session reviewed some examples of mutually-beneficial interaction between Regional GEOs and GEO Flagships, Initiatives or Community Activities, with the aim of identifying and sharing good practices that may have an impact in new regions.

Speakers came from all over the world, with the European GEO community represented by EuroGEO.
