Eight Plenary Meeting of UN-GGIM: Europe
13–14 Oct 2021
The Eight Plenary Meeting of the European Region of the United Nations Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM: Europe) will beheld on the 13 – 14 October 2021.
The original intention was for the Eight Plenary Meeting of UN-GGIM: Europe to be held in Brussels, Belgium as a physical event, the date of the event was moved from June to October in the hope that travel disruption cause by the Covid-19 pandemic would have eased. However, since travel restrictions are continuing the Eight Plenary Meeting of UN-GGIM: Europe will once again be organised as a Virtual Plenary Meeting.
The Virtual Plenary Meeting will be split into three sessions of two and half hours each. They will be held over two days, in the morning (10:00 – 12:30) and the afternoon (14:00-16:30) of Wednesday the 13 October and the morning (10:00 – 12:30) of Thursday the 14 October. A number of side-events on different topics are planned for the afternoon (14:00-15:30) of the 14 October. All times are Central European Summer Time (CEST).
The Eight Plenary Meeting of UN-GGIM: Europe will once again bring together senior executives from national geospatial information and statistical authorities within Member States and international geospatial experts from across the region. One advantage of having a virtual event is that it offers the possibility of more Member States to participate.
