EEA report on state of environment - Data process characterization

The European Environment Agency has published an invitation to tender for services relating to data process characterization in connection with the compilation of a three-year assessment report on the state of the environment in Europe.

The European Environment Agency (EEA) provides information for those concerned with the development of European environmental policy, as well as for the wider European public. The EEA prepares three-year state of the environment reports, the next of which has to be ready by December 1998. The geographical scope of the report aims at coverage of the 15 EU Member States, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, the ten Central and Eastern European countries, the Arctic and Baltic regions bordering the EU and the Mediterranean region.

To make the data collection and data processing for the next three-year report as effective and smooth as possible, guidelines for data and information characterization and gathering have to be prepared at an early stage in the reporting process. This "guidelines report" will be distributed to the network of the Agency's partners and contacts which assist the Agency in the preparation and the collection of data in a comparable format.

The work will be based on the first guidelines document of the agency, "Guidelines for the data collection for the Dobris+3 report". The work has to be executed in a period of approximately five months in the second half of 1997. Frequent contacts with EEA staff in Copenhagen and experts of the EEA European Topic Centres will be necessary.
