EuroGeographics works closely with its members, with the European Commission and with the Parliament to ensure that EU policies and programmes take full benefit from the information assets which are available from the member states.
Whenever we can we take the opportunity to explain the power and usefulness of authoritative location information in developing policy and designing or delivering services.
We engage actively in the development of relevant European legislation so that everybody benefits from our member's products, services and expertise.
Our members are actively engaged in delivering services required by the INSPIRE directive, in supporting GMES services by providing authoritative location information. Three of the pillars of the Digital Agenda for Europe (DAE) are particularly relevant to our members all of whom suport and enhance the re-use of Public Sector Information.
A number of the ambitions of the eJustice programme rely on our members products and services and our members are active in supporting Cross Border Mortgaging in the EU.
Our products and services provide Europe with an information asset that supports its goal to become the most competitive and sustainable economy in the world.
