The outcomes of the workshop include position papers on various aspects of the future GEOSS, including: the integration of different sensor networks, the handling of the emerging “data super nova”, data patterns recognition to generate information, and principles recognition to generate knowledge.

The workshop aimed to give recommendations for the governance of earth observation networks and associated information services, the further development of data sharing principles and approaches, and concepts for sustainable knowledge generation based on earth observations. Of particular interest are concepts for private-public partnerships to ensure the sustained availability of data, information and practice-relevant knowledge as public goods for the global community.

The output is used for the project ConnectinGEO, particularly in the development of the European Network of Earth Observation Networks (ENEON).

One goal was to provide recommendations to the Implementation Plan Working Group (IPWG) of GEO developing the strategy for the post-2015 GEO. The recommendations will be communicated to the IPWG throught the GEO Secretariat. These recommendations also will be communicate to the Minsterial Summit on Earth Observations taking place in Mexico City in November 2015 (see the flyer).
