In conjunction with new data collaboration platform Oasis HUB, the IEA is hosting this one-day event to introduce users of environmental and EO data for disaster risk reduction to cutting-edge platforms being built to offer stakeholders greater access to international environmental data repositories.

If you work in the area of disaster risk management or reinsurance sector, this is your opportunity to influence new hubs being developed to enable user-friendly access and exploitation of reliable and robust data.

Dr Jon Blower, Chief Technical Officer of the IEA, says: “The IEA is working within the NextGEOSS project on various fronts, including user training, community engagement and user-centric technical development. We are therefore delighted to host this event, which will help to make sure that Earth Observation data are useful for the disaster risk reduction community.”

You will also be able to meet and network with Risk experts and leading European researchers in environmental informatics. You will share feedback on current systems, your insights into accessing appropriate data and your opinions on the new portals.

There will be free hands-on training with real-life scenarios using real data, enabling you to give feedback directly to developers.
