Bringing the subsurface into the light - drawing together the baseline data and knowledge needed to manage Europe's natural resources and reach Net Zero
The Geological Surveys of Europe have a long history of cooperation, both through their umbrella organisation EuroGeoSurveys - the project coordinator - and through numerous joint projects and programmes. While these collaborations have been crucial for joint innovation, the exchange of knowledge and expertise, and the development of data and information standards and harmonisation frameworks, the sustainable provision of a Geological Service for Europe requires that this cooperation goes a step further.
The existing EGDI system will be taken to a new level by transforming the current data infrastructure into a knowledge infrastructure. EGDI will become a fundamental element of the GSEU, supporting the delivery of knowledge to policy makers and other stakeholders.
