The theme of this year's INSPIRE Conference is "INSPIREd by 2020 - Contributing to smart, sustainable and inclusive growth"
In 2010, the European Union renewed its commitment to 'knowledge-based' sustainable development by putting forward three mutually reinforcing priorities in the Europe 2020 Strategy1:
Smart growth: developing an economy based on knowledge and innovation;
Sustainable growth: promoting a more resource efficient, greener and more competitive economy;
Inclusive growth: fostering a high-employment economy delivering social and territorial cohesion.
The University of Edinburgh will present a workshop, "Shibboleth Federations and Secure SDI: Outcome and Demonstrations from the OGC Web Service Shibboleth Interoperability Experiment."
This edition of the INSPIRE Conference offers an opportunity to explore INSPIRE's contribution to Europe's 2020 strategic goals and to root its further implementation and development in the EU 2020 follow-up programmes.
