ENVRI Community supporting the global Earth System Science
Below are few examples of the European Research Infrastructures and their links to global networks and initiatives. Special attention is paid to their contribution to several projects run by the intergovernmental Group on Earth Observations (GEO). GEO is leading a worldwide effort to build a Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS)
The international cooperation of European Research Infrastructures is further supported by the EU funded project COOP + (Cooperation of Research Infrastructures to address global challenges in the environmental field). Its goal is to strengthen the links and coordination of the European RIs with its international counterparts (e.g. NEON, TERN, AMISR/SRI, CGSM, OOI, INPA/LBA, IMOS, OCN, AMERIFLUX, etc.) and to leverage international scientific cooperation and data exchange with non-EU countries.
