Project ID: 502954
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE

Abstract

This is the executive summary of the EC-backed GMES-Poland project which aimed to promote the participation of Poland and other central European countries in the Global monitoring for environment and security (GMES) initiative.

It describes the efforts of the project consortium to establish a single entity - the GMES information centre (GIC) within the Polish Space Office - whose mission is to serve as the contact point between institutions and the GMES thematic project consortia.

Another part of the project was devoted to the promotion of the use of Earth observation data by public users, including policy makers. This report describes the series of conferences and seminars which were organised by the GMES-Poland project and were dedicated to growing public awareness of the potential benefits of GMES.
