Working groups l.jpg
Working Groups

  • Prime tool to initiate and facilitate co-operation and agenda setting

  • Tasked with work program

  • Current Working Groups:

    • Environmental modelling

    • Interoperability

    • Data Policy

    • Education

Research vision intention l.jpg
Research Vision:intention

  • Initiate broad discussion on research challenges

  • Develop coherent image of AGILE research priorities

  • Exploit new opportunities and align agenda to current and future needs of society

Research vision policy context 1 l.jpg
Research vision:policy context (1)

  • spatial dimensions of EU policies

    • Integrative approach

    • Spatial planning at regional scale as framework

    • Consequence: need for GI(S) for policy monitoring and evaluation

      • Access

      • Dissemination

      • Participation

      • Integration

Research vision policy context 2 l.jpg
Research vision:policy context (2)

  • Needs:

    • data flow from local to European level

    • new datasets for new policy domains

    • know who owns data and how to access it

    • data comparability and interoperability

    • analyse fuzzy territorial units

    • aggregate data to flexible geographies

    • add intelligence to data

Research vision policy context 3 l.jpg
Research vision:policy context (3)

  • European Research Area

    • networking of centres of excellence

    • creation of virtual centres

    • coherent implementation of national and European research activities

    • establish common system of scientific and technical reference for the implementation of policies

    • greater mobility of researchers

Research vision policy context 4 l.jpg
Research vision:policy context (4)

  • European research priorities of interest to GI research community

    • Research to develop the information society (eEurope)

    • Research to implement a sustainable development model

    • Research related to the needs of society

Research vision 5 research challenges l.jpg
Research vision:5 Research Challenges

  • GI Policy and Society

  • Theory of spatio-temporal information systems

  • Dynamic modelling of environmental and social processes

  • Semantic interoperability of spatial data and services

  • Integration of social and physical sciences in their contribution to space

Research vision action oriented research agenda l.jpg
Research vision:action oriented research agenda

  • concentrate on case studies of direct value to Europe and its citizens

  • generalize and integrate existing research into a scientific framework

  • build a European scientific infrastructure, with:

    • grants for mobility

    • support 3-5 year projects

    • long time support for centres of excellence

    • flexible framework to respond quickly to new challenges

Research vision future steps l.jpg
Research vision:future steps

  • From Green to White paper

  • AGILE research programme

  • Explore funding opportunities

  • Research map and programmes reinforce, via AGILE members, European GI research policy.
