  • The Group on Earth Observation (GEO) has the mandate to implement the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS ). GEOSS is intended to serve users in nine Societal Benefit Areas (SBA s) of Earth Observation, particularly in support of decision and policy making. The success of GEO depends strongly on the contributions and support from a wide range of Science and Technology (S&T) communities. The EGIDA main goal has been to support broader implementation and sustainability of the GEOSS S&T roadmap and the mission of the GEOSS facilitating a coherent and interoperable networking of national and international initiatives and European projects. EGIDA has prepared a sustainable process promoting coordination of activities carried out by: the GEO S&T Committee; S&T national and European initiatives; and other S&T Communities. EGIDA has delivered evaluation processes, tests and assessment indexes, expertise databases, a \"GEO Label\" concept, surveys, and other instruments and service functions that facilitate the link of relevant European and global S&T communities to GEOSS and ensure it is built using state-of-the-art S&T. Through co-ordination with the relevant tasks of the Institutional Development Implementation Board (former tasks of the GEOSS S&T Committee), these deliverables will contribute strongly to the GEO S&T Roadmap implementation. For European countries, EGIDA delivered the \"EGIDA Methodology\": a sustainable mechanism based on the GEO S&T approach at national and regional level, to coordinate national multi-disciplinary \"System of Systems\". This builds on existing national initiatives and European projects, and facilitates the European S&T Community contributions to and interactions with GEOSS . The EGIDA Methodology can improve development and management of S&T infrastructures, supporting mobilization of the resources needed to contribute effectively to GEOSS . EGIDA involved developing countries by transferring the EGIDA S&T methodology to them and implementing five specific use cases: a pan-European thematic usecase (Air Quality and Health), two regional use-cases (Air Quality and Environmental status in the Mediterranean region) and a small country use-case (Slovenia); during the project, it was decided to conceive and add a new use case to revamp the S&T initiatives for GEO Spain. EGIDA has embedded within a wide Network of Stakeholders selected to represent the various actors (science teams and institutions, S&T programmes, GEO components) and the scientific fields relevant to the nine GEOSS SBA s. This network, called EGIDA Stakeholder Network, has evolved in the GEOSS Science and Technology Stakeholder Network, an important instrument for GEOSS to implement a user-driven process. This was an important success of the project. The EGIDA achievements are useful instruments contributing to close the geographical gaps particularly in developing countries. The project identified S&T communities currently not sufficiently linked to GEO and GEOSS and promoted their involvement. It provides a significant set of use-case for the EGIDA methodology transfer process, focusing on partnership, infrastructures, products and services. (literal)
