GMES & Africa Marine Services Design Workshop (October 2018)

The G&A Marine Services Design Workshop (a.k.a. on-the-job training on eStation 2.0) took place at
JRC in Ispra from the 1st to 12th of October 2018, with the participation of experts from CSIR, MOI,
NARSS and UoG.
The main goal of the Workshop was to work together with staff from RICs on the practical
implementation of environmental monitoring services, in the framework of GMES&Africa program.
The Workshop was very successful, much appreciated by the participants, and allowed a number of
developments of the eStation to serve the needs of GMES&Africa stakeholders, and the definition
of a precise implementation plan for further actions, including technical visits to the regional
implementation centers in the course of 2019.
