The Bratislava Conference of the 10th and 11th of December 1996 allowed all the partners of the MERA 92 project to present their results. As can be observed by these Proceedings, these results have been impressive and the MERA 92 project more than achieved its objectives. Although there was no doubt about the scientific excellence of our partners in central and eastern Europe when the programme was defined by Directorate General I and Phare countries in1992, there was a strong gap in the use of advanced techniques such as earth observation, geographic information systems, modelling activities between the countries of the European Union and countries of central and eastern Europe. At the end of the MERA 92 project, through the provision of equipment, transfer of expertise, scientific and technical exchanges, thematic studies insoil erosion, forestry, crop inventories, etc, we are now confident that such a gap does not exist in this domain of activities. The MERA 92 project also allowed the decision-makers to see the usefulness of such advanced techniques and to embark on a more challenging programme of operational use of such techniques.
