INSPIRE Knowledge Base


Participatory approach

The development of the INSPIRE Implementing Rules and Technical Guidance documents and the maintenance and implementation framework  have been based on a participatory process, involving experts from stakeholder organisations in the Member States.

Pool of experts

The MIG is complemented by a pool of experts drawn from the stakeholder community. The experts in this pool are called upon when MIG sub-groups are formed to address specific implementation or maintenance issues, but will also provide the opportunity to reach out to experts involved or interested in particular aspects of INSPIRE implementation or maintenance.

The call is open to all individuals with a high level of expertise in one or several of the aspects relevant for INSPIRE implementation and maintenance.

Open discussions

Each year a European INSPIRE Conference is held to provides a forum for stakeholders from government, academia and industry to hear about and discuss the latest developments of the INSPIRE Directive.
