The "DIRECTIVE 2007/2/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL establishing an Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community ", better known as INSPIRE, celebrates this year the 10th anniversary of its entry into force.

Environmental issues do not stop at borders and neither does the Digital Single Market where spatial data should be able to flow without obstacles to fully reach its potential for sustainable growth.

This makes INSPIRE – as an example of a European Interoperability Framework and digital infrastructure - more than ever relevant for both the environment, the European Digital Economy and society in general.

By organizing the INSPIRE 2017 conference together, the governments of Germany and France, in partnership with the European Commission want to emphasize this message while underlining also the importance of working together across borders, and across policy and economic sectors to make this sharing of spatial data even more a reality for the wider benefit of our citizens, businesses and environment.

The conference will be held in Germany - 1st part, the wrokshops 4-5 September, 2nd conference part in France 6-8 September.
