Building operational sustainable services for GMES

Objective

To date, GMES has made good progress in building user communities and in developing prototype services to meet the specific needs of each community. However, if GMES is to evolve into a viable and valued activity, meeting the needs of Europe's decision makers for timely, accurate and relevant information related to critical environmental and security topics, a number of key issues need to recognised, analysed and resolved. BOSS4GMES aims to do precisely this, and thereby play a major role in the operationalisation of GMES. The key issues which will be targeted are: a lack of integration/interoperability between GMES service structures and architectures, and the perceived high operating costs that are likely to result; the lack of appropriate contracting principles and commercial structures; and insufficient awareness amongst political decision makers and the general public in the nature of GMES and the benefits it will bring.
