Based on the emerging policy landscape under the new Commission and the status of the implementation and impact of INSPIRE, the new work programme should focus on the following key strategic objectives:
- Develop a future vision for the role of INSPIRE in the Green Deal Data space in particular and the EU Common Data space in general.
- Define the INSPIRE “crown jewels” – those data sets/themes, for which tangible benefits for environment policy, the implementation of the European Green Deal or other political priorities can be expected.
- Develop an implementation plan to focus implementation efforts to maximise availability, ensure interoperability and reach pan-European spatial coverage for this well-defined set of priority data.
- Continue work on simplifying and mainstreaming the technical requirements of the INSPIRE Directive, taking into account emerging paradigms, standards and technologies.
- Define the transition from the current legal framework to a digital ecosystem for environment and sustainability.
These key objectives will be grouped into the following main areas of work for the work programme:
- Area of work 1: A digital ecosystem for the environment and sustainability;
- Area of work 2: Towards a common implementation landing zone;
- Area of work 3: GreenData4All.
These new strategic directions will guide the work programme and should result in immediate actions to demonstrate that the INSPIRE Directive can be implemented in a proportionate, faster and pragmatic way.
The actions in the table below have been endorsed in the MIWP 2021 - 2024.
