2 AUT/ LHTEE ENV-e-CITY background n Compliance of city authorities with EU environmental legislation u Need for efficient environmental assessments; these are only possible on the basis of sufficient and reliable environmental information. n Need to inform the citizen on the state of the environment n Support of environmental professionals, e.g. those involved in impact assessment studies

3 AUT/ LHTEE ENV-e-CITY project goals n Ultimate goal of project: u To create an internet-based brokerage infrastructure for public sector environmental information, available as a “turn-key” application via docking. n Relationship to other projects: u Innovative project acting as an extension of existing, “information production” projects (APNEE, IRENIE, AIR-EIA, APPETISE, etc.)
