Warsaw, 15 September 2016.
On 15 September 2016 GRID-Warsaw will be holding the international conference “Science, Business and Environment”, being a part of celebrations of its 25th Anniversary.
The conference is organized in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The main objective is to present the state, changes and threats (hot issues) for the pan-European continent, identified in the latest UNEP report ("GEO-6 Assessment for the pan-European region"), published in June 2016 and released as part of the Global Environment Outlook series.
The conference is connected to ECOPOTENTIAL, as it covers issues of relevance and interest to the project, namely collecting, sharing, and utilizing data and geoinformation tools for environmental investigations and assessments, employing the concept of ecosystem services. These topics will fill the most of a special panel session dedicated to biodiversity and will be also present at the plenary opening session “Environmental changes in the pan-European region - current trends and challenges. Using environmental data in science, business and administration.”
