The Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community, aka INSPIRE, aims to create a European Union spatial data infrastructure for the purposes of EU environmental policies and policies or activities which may have an impact on the environment. A decade since INSPIRE was implemented it has resulted in a growing availability of a wide range of spatial data.

This year, the conference aims to contribute to the implementation of INSPIRE Directive by 2020, focusing on incentives for strengthened cross-border and cross-sector cooperation among all stakeholders at national, regional and local levels.
