 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'Balkan countries do not have a coherent and continuous approach towards the challenge of implementing integrated Earth Observation (EO) applications in environmental monitoring and management. It should be mentioned that the Balkan countries, except Greece, are not ESA members. Besides, Albania, Serbia, Bulgaria, FYROM, Montenegro and Bosnia Herzegovina are also not members of the GEO.

The defect in the implementation of EO applications and their use in the environmental decision making are manifested through the limited synergies among national and regional institutions, ineffective technological means and discontinuous record of participation to international organizations and committees.

On the other hand, the increasing importance of a common approach towards effective environmental monitoring practices, for the benefit of the societal web of the broader Balkan region, calls for immediate action, setting as a starting point the built up of regional institutional capacity and spillage of technology transfer.

The aim of the OBSERVE project is to collect and compile all the necessary information for delivering an integrated analysis on the current status of EO activities and networks in the Balkans regarding environmental monitoring, the potential benefit from the full exploitation of an integrated capacity building strategy and the prospect of creating a relevant permanent EO Community in the broader region. OBSERVE project has the ultimate goal to raise awareness and establish firm links with the regional decision making bodies on the importance of a mutual and enhanced EO application network on environmental monitoring according to the principles of the GEO.

The OBSERVE project consortium consists of 15 institutions from 13 different countries, 8 of which belong to the Balkan region. 10 of the partners are Universities/Research Organizations while the other 5 are from private sector.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Until now, Balkan countries did not yet have an integrated approach to the implementation of Earth Observation (EO) applications for environmental monitoring and management. This has meant limited synergy between national and regional institutions, as well as a lack of effective infrastructure and technologies.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

The aim of the EU-funded 'Strengthening and development of Earth observation activities for the environment in the Balkan area' (OBSERVE) project was to compile the information needed for an integrated analysis on the current status of EO activities and networks in the Balkans. OBSERVE also aimed to raise awareness and establish firm links with regional decision-making bodies.

Project activities stimulated new research ideas and the adoption of research methodologies. There was also a particular focus on developing and fostering an environment in which the use of EO would enhance decision making.

OBSERVE managed to bring together research communities and stakeholders from different origins as well. This served to boost competiveness and the effective use of resources within the EO industry.

In addition, the adoption of best practices and standards will have an extensive economic impact on the Balkans. The experience gained from this project will thus simplify future cooperative activities between Balkan partners.
