WP6Links with Commission ServicesDissemination of resultsFollow-up activitiesStatus and plan
WP6 – Status and plan: objectives • To promote awareness amongst forest community and other data users • Continually inform DG AGRI, DG ENV, and DG RTD of NEFIS developments • Ensure that NEFIS evolves in accordance with on-going and future forest policies • To act as S&T link between Commission services and NEFIS • To ensure that NEFIS evolves in an integrated manner with other Community Networks. • Demonstrate NEFIS in forest fora
1. To promote awareness amongst forest community and other data users • NEFIS is presented as an activity in which JRC is collaborating • NEFIS is closely related to other JRC activities in INFOREST • Forest Focus regulation (2152/2003) • Atmospheric Pollution on forests • Forest Fires • Biodiversity • Climate change & carbon sequestration • Soils • Protective function of the forest • Need to integrate activities from other partners
2. Inform DG AGRI, DG ENV, and DG RTD of NEFIS developments3. Ensure NEFIS evolves in accordance with on-going and future forest policies4. To act as S&T link between Commission services and NEFIS • Continous contact with DG ENV regarding Forest Focus • JRC is Scientific Coordination Body of Forest Focus • JRC is in charge of establishing a Forest Focus Data Platform • Data management • Data analysis and reporting • Data access to EU, EEA, and ICP • Data access to researchers and general public • JRC is in charge of the European Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS) • Continuous contact with DG AGRI regarding the follow-up of EFICS • Specifications for a European Forest Information and Communication Platform (EFICP) as follow up of EFICS • Contact with RTD to be developed
5. Ensure that NEFIS evolves in an integrated manner with other Community Networks. • Contact with ENFIN (European National Forest Inventory Network) • Coordination with Community networks: • Forest Focus data platform Collection of data on effects of atmospheric pollution in forest • European Forest Fire Information System • Collection of forest fire event data from MS • Provision of forest fire risk forecast • Provision of maps of forest fire damages (fires>50 ha) • Contact with UN-ECE/FAO/EC for harmonized forest information collection schemes
WP6 – Status and plan: Deliverables • Preparation of a demonstration package • Organization of a symposium (foreseen June/July 2005) • Final publication including guidelines
