Presentations GMES Governance Workshop - May 11, 2009 Brussels

Estimated Article Reading Time: 2 min.

The GMES Governance workshop organised by the EARSC and EUROSPACE Associations in cooperation with the GMES Bureau and the European Economic and Social Committee, EESC held on May 11 in Brussels, was successful in that it lived up to the main objective exposing possible governance models and making a first evaluation of their impact on the industry.

GMES needs to evolve into full operational maturity. This requires a sustainable programme including long-term funding commitment; a suitable governance structure and a specific legislative and regulatory framework.The type of governance which will be adopted might have a strong impact on the structuring and future of the industry.
