OGC's Europe Forum
The promotion and adoption of interoperability in Europe is part of the OGC's Outreach Program.
In order to better adress European interests and requirements, a Europe Forum has been developed by European members of the OGC. The main focus of this Forum is to exchange ideas, strengthen the network of European members and establish consortia for purposes such as responding to European tenders for geospatial technologies and solutions. The Forum is open for OGC members only and it has formal status as a Working Group of the OGC.
The Europe Forum furthermore helps organizations to achieve the benefits of interoperability by bringing together technologists, vendors, and customers from throughout Europe to collaboratively execute fast-paced, hands-on projects that focus on particular pre-procurement customer requirements.
The Europe Forum meets during OGC Technical Committee meetings and through teleconferences.
