Welcome to Florence, the cradle of Renaissance!
As much as the Renaissance movement profoundly affected European intellectual life, its influence felt in art, literature, politics, science, religion, etc., so is INSPIRE influencing the way in which information for managing our planet can be shared and served.
Alike the Renaissance movement, INSPIRE is slowly, but steadily spreading over Europe and beyond, with on the way, its principles being debated and implemented.
The aim of this year’s INSPIRE Conference is therefore to take stock of this progress. To further exchange views and experiences on how INSPIRE is meeting past and emerging challenges and needs. To identify new opportunities and to finally, reflect collectively on how INSPIRE can further evolve to maximise its benefits for society.
The INSPIRE Conference 2013 will take place from Sunday 23rd – Thursday 27th June 2013 in Florence, Italy.
