[Source: Research & Innovation] As one of the four GEO co-chairs, the European Commission will participate to the 'GEO week 2016' hosted by the Russian Federal Space Agency (ROSCOSMOS) and the Russian Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring (Roshydromet). Important features of the GEO Plenary will be the first ever participation of representatives from the private commercial sector and the showcasing of GEO's most successful and most promising initiatives in a series of presentations and panel discussions. The European Commission will showcase how it provides support for the implementation of the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) through the Copernicus Programme and the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (R&I) (Horizon 2020). At the GEO Exposition, the European Commission Stand will host over 30 EU-funded projects and programmes and several European GEO participating organisations. We look forward to meeting you at GEO-XIII!
