The EEA conference on 9-10 July 2008 will enable European coastal experts to explore opportunities that are becoming available as a result of ICAN work and will allow for support and contributions to the respective work in Europe. This conference comes at an opportune moment and is of significant relevance as important policy decisions and developments took place in Europe in 2007 regarding the management of coastal, marine and maritime resources. These will shape the design, functioning and sharing of coastal and marine information services in the coming years. To this end, the EEA has initiated, together with the member countries, the regional seas Conventions and the European Commission, several activities that will benefit greatly from the realisation of coastal/marine mapping projects. The EEA conference will be led by Mr. Ronan Uhel, Head of the Spatial Analysis Group at the EEA.
