Glimpses from the EEA ICT strategy related to the next 5-year work programme 2014-2018 and relevant for Eionet Chris Steenmans Head of Programme, European Environment Agency Workshop on Future Trends in Environmental Reporting (and SOER on line) Swedish EPA, Stockholm 30-31 October 2013

An ICT strategy driven by SEIS requirements To simplify the collection, exchange and use of data – From centralized reporting to access and sharing across distributed interoperable nodes To improve quality and availability of information – Up-to-date information on current and emerging environmental challenges To improve interoperability – Use of open standards To reduce workloads – Streamlining, cost-efficiency
A CRUCIAL MOMENT FOR EUROPE EEA work programme 2014-2018 1.To be the prime source of knowledge at European level informing the implementation of European and national environment and climate policies; 2.To be a leading knowledge centre on the knowledge needed for supporting long term transition challenges and objectives; 3.To be the lead organisation at European level facilitating knowledge-sharing and capacity -building in the field of environment and climate change.

A CRUCIAL MOMENT FOR EUROPE A deeper understanding of challenges Increased complexity of problem definition, analysis, and response. The EU 7th Environment Action Plan Living well, within the limits of our planet.
EU Environment Action Programme 2020 The 7 th EAP focusses on three thematic priority objectives: ‘To protect, conserve and enhance the EU’s natural capital’ ‘To turn the EU into a resource-efficient, green and competitive low-carbon economy’ ‘To safeguard EU citizens from environment-related pressures and risks to health and well-being’.
EEA strategic response SA1 Informing policy implementation SA2 Assessing systemic challenges SA3 Knowledge creation, sharing and use Dynamic interactions
A CRUCIAL MOMENT FOR EUROPE Informing policy implementation - SA1 Goal - Improve content, accessibility and use of European-level environmental information. Achieve by 2018 - Measurable uptake of EEA findings, and the timely and reliable delivery of outputs. Urban, land use and soil Waste and material resources Climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation Biodiversity, ecosystems, agriculture and forests Air pollution, transport and noise Industrial Pollution Water management, resources and ecosystems Marine and maritime, fisheries and coastal Climate change mitigation and energy
Improving data sharing and data flows => Structured Implementation and Information Frameworks (SIIFs)
Streamlining environmental indicators => Sharing European and National State of the Environment (SENSE)
A CRUCIAL MOMENT FOR EUROPE Assessing systemic challenges – SA2 Goal - To assess systemic challenges in the context of short, medium and long-term transitions and signal opportunities for (re)framing / recalibration of environmental policy Achieve by 2018 - Prompt delivery of SOER2015 and annual indicator reports, and measurable recognition in the 7EAP evaluation process. Resource-efficient economy and the environment Environment, human health and well-being Megatrends and transitions Sustainability assessments and state of the environment reporting

A CRUCIAL MOMENT FOR EUROPE Knowledge creation, sharing and use –SA 3 Goal - To be the authoritative information node and hub within networks of knowledge co-creation, sharing and use. Achieve by 2018 - Metrics to measure the active participation of EIONET; online availability of data information products and services; and impacts of communication efforts. Networking and partnerships Technical systems development Monitoring, data and information management Communication, outreach and user analysis Copernicus operational services Capacity building in West Balkan and European neighbourhood countries
A CRUCIAL MOMENT FOR EUROPE Infrastructure for Spatial Information
A CRUCIAL MOMENT FOR EUROPE The EU Earth Observation Programme
Conclusions With the aim of using ICT to improve its core business, EEA intends to: Strengthen its role as a service provider Improve information services delivery through partnerships Improve access to its information services Increase the efficiency of its information service delivery Extend the use of its information services through dialogue instruments to enlarge the knowledge base for environmental policy in Europe.
