On October 22-24, 2019, Helsinki will gather leading developers and influencers of European spatial data infrastructures to take on the challenge to ideate the future of spatial data and services.

Join us in harvesting the 'Sea of European spatial data' to improve both decision-making and the daily life of everyone.

At the Inspire Helsinki 2019 event:

  • We look beyond the status quo to see what can be achieved with European spatial data now and in the future. 
  • We want to get the full potential of the latest technologies.
  • We bring together approximately 150 people to foster discussion and new ideas in data challenges.
  • We host practical hands-on workshops and outstanding keynote presentations in a modern venue.

Check the event website to know more! Additional information on program and speakers will be published soon.

Data Challenges are on their way

The Inspire Helsinki 2019 event will host challenges for practical uses of spatial data in the domains of sea, weather and built environment. Challenges will formulate around technologies like WFS 3.0, vector tiles and simpler data formats for INSPIRE. The challenges will be developed with the help of our partners and published on the challenge website by the end of May. After that the registration for the event and the challenges will be opened!

Call for Workshops is now open

The event will also have workshops aiming to boost the awareness of new technologies for the provision and use of e.g. API based spatial data and Internet of Things (IoT). We encourage the topics of the workshops to be related to the data challenges (weather, sea, cities) or the Smart Land Administration World Bank initiative (SDG, UN-GGIM, Innovation Hub). If you would like to host a workshop, then check the website and submit your workshop proposal by filling in this form byJune 3rd .

Become a partner

We are also looking for partners to join the event. The Inspire Helsinki 2019 event is a great opportunity for any company or organization to gain visibility among the leading developers and influencers of European spatial data infrastructures.
