We are pleased to announce that the INSPIRE Thematic Clusters collaboration platform has now over 500 members.
The platform, since its launch in December 2014, is fulfilling its role of“Connecting communities” of INSPIRE implementors and users. It serves as an entry point for the INSPIRE Community to share experiences, best practices, raise questions and resolve issues in their thematic domains.
The thematic discussions - todate with 240 discussion topics with almost 500 responses - are taking place in 9 clusters/groups as well as in their sub-groups. Each cluster has a facilitator whose role is to lead and participate in discussions, identify and facilitate sharing of best practice and key issues, identify relevant projects and software solutions. The thematic discussions have already indicated several potential additions, clarifications as well as omissions in the official INSPIRE technical documentation framework.
This activity is part of the INSPIRE Maintenance and Implementation Framework, with the objective of supporting INSPIRE implementation in the Member States.
We invite you to join us on the platform and participate in the discussions relevant for you. Use the opportunity to share your implementation experience and/or learn from others about best practice in implementation and use of INSPIRE.
