"Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to announce the call for contributions for the INSPIRE Conference 2013.

The INSPIRE Conference 2013 will take place from  Sunday 23rd – Thursday 27th June 2013 in Florence, Italy.  The theme of this year's edition is "The Green Renaissance".

As much as the Renaissance movement profoundly affected European intellectual life, its influence felt in art, literature, politics, science, religion, etc., so is the INSPIRE Directive 2007/2 influencing the way in which information for managing our planet can be shared and served.  Alike the Renaissance movement, INSPIRE is slowly, but steadily spreading over Europe and beyond, with on the way, its principles being debated and implemented. The aim of this year's INSPIRE Conference is therefore to take stock of this progress, to further exchange views and experiences on how INSPIRE is meeting past and emerging challenges and needs, to identify new opportunities and to finally, reflect collectively on how INSPIRE can further evolve to maximise its benefits for society. We invite paper and poster proposals on all aspects of INSPIRE and presentations that reflect the three pillars of the conference Showcase on Environment, Capacities and Networking.

The full list of topics is available on the Conference website:

We take this opportunity to inform you that the JRC data specifications team and the Thematic Working Groups are working hard on finalising version 3.0rc3 (release candidate 3) of the INSPIRE data specifications for the Annex II+III data themes. This version will be consistent with the draft amendment of the Implementing Rules for interoperability of spatial data sets and services that are currently being translated. The corresponding data models and xml schemas have already been published (see, and the guidelines will follow early next year, as they become available. Check the data specifications section of the INSPIRE web site ( for the latest documents.

Finally, we would like to thank all of you for your continued support for the INSPIRE endeavor. The EC INSPIRE Team wishes you a Merry Christmas and a successful 2013.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Florence!

Best regards,
The INSPIRE team"

DFG/ICSU/ISSC Young Scientists Networking Conference on Integrated Science
Dear Members,

The DFG, ICSU and ISSC are organising a networking conference in April 2013 in Villa Vigoni at Lake Como in Italy. Young scientists working on integrated science on food systems are invited to submit their proposals.
Applications close on December 14th.
Food poses one of the key challenges for human societies in the coming decades. Food Futuresencompasses everything from what we eat and food security to the way we research and talk about food. Food is often a central theme in issues related to security, global health, demographics, geography, urbanities, culture and society, political systems, and local and global environments.
ICSU and ISSC, in collaboration with the DFG, are planning to assemble a large group of young researchers with diverse research perspectives to reflect on Food Futures and debate relevant issues as part of a series of conferences on Integrated Science. The aim is to bring together creative multidimensional, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary perspectives to address such a complex topic like food systems. These early career scientists will ask what are and will be the challenges related to food, now and in the future, and they are expected to devise the next generation of research programmes and projects, looking for a suitable definition and means to reach global sustainability goals.
Young scientists are invited to submit applications for participation in a Networking Conference on Integrated Science.
The DFG/ICSU/ISSC Young Scientists Networking Conference on Integrated Science discussing the Future Earth theme Food Futures will take place in Villa Vigoni, the German $B!> (BItalian Centre for Cultural and Scientific Exchange at Lake Como in Italy, from 14 $B!> (B19 April, 2013.

Honi térinformatikai vállalkozások! Lehetőség a versenyképesség erősítésére

HUNAGI lehetőséget kapott arra, hogy a két hete bemutatott smeSpire EU projektben résztvevő 12 ország mellett hazánk kis- és közepes méretű vállalkozásai is bekerüljenek az Európai Bizottság (JRC) irányításával készült térinformatikai felmérésbe, melyen keresztül megmutathatják magukat, sőt élvezhetik a projekt befogadott résztvevőjeként annak minden előnyét. A kapcsolattartás mindenekelőtt elektronikusan megy, mivel részvételünkhöz anyagi támogatást nem tudnak adni, viszont költségráfordítás tekintetében sem a HUNAGI-nak, sem a résztvevő kkv-nak kötelezettsége nincsen. HUNAGI nagyon ajánlja avállalkozó tagjaink, sőt partnereink becsatlakozását a felmérésbe, mert a projektben való aktivitásunk egyben a hazai piaci szereplők európai szintű szerepvállalási készségének és képességének várhatóan egyik fokmérője lesz.
HUNAGI minden segítséget megad ahhoz, hogy a projektvezetéssel kapcsolatot tartva a nemzetközi tekintetben is számottevő hazai térinformatikai piaci potenciált érzékeltessük, a lehetőségeket felismerjük és azokkal élhessünk.
Mielőbb teljen meg  Magyarország projekt-térképe a térinformatikai vállalkozások telephelyeit szimbolizáló jelkulcsi elemekkel!

Ime a kísérő levelezés  a JRC felmérés linkjével, melyet Giacomo Martirano projekt-koordinátor volt szíves megküldeni:

"Dear Gabor,
following my last e-mail sent to you a while ago, please find below the e-mail sent yesterday by JRC to launch a massive invitation to participate to a survey, involving almost 1700 geoICT SMEs in the 12 Countries participating to the project.
Coherently with what we discussed in Lisbon and with subsequent e-mails, I hope the e-mail below can be another dissemination mean in your hands J
As soon as you will have set up a dissemination “strategy” in Hungary, we will be very glad to receive a short note from you and to publish/emphasize it on our channels.
Many thanks in advance for your cooperation
Kind regards and I hope to see you soon again

By filling in the survey, you will become part of the smeSpire network of European Geo-ICT SMEs, and will enjoy the following benefits of project:
·         be included in the Network database: the largest public on GeoICT SME’s, a searchable and structured repository of information on the characteristics, activities and competencies of Geo-ICT SMEs in Europe.
·         access our Training Platform: acquire knowledge and skills on INSPIRE and all the related implementation issues.
·         insert your Best Practice in the catalogue of INSPIRE implementations
·         receive news and updates
·         use additional resources as soon as they become available

By completing the survey you will also receive the first smeSpire newsletter, with news and details about the project.

This is a great opportunity to promote your business, advertise your skills and get in touch with other similar companies, helping to enlarge your market in Europe.

Thanks for your help.
