Description

Dear MIG-T representatives,

please find attached a draft of a renewed INSPIRE Maintenance and Implementation Work Programme (MIWP) for your review and feedback by 25 May.

The results of the INSPIRE evaluation (REFIT) and the implementation report provide a clear picture on the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive at its half-way point. A lot of progress has been made but there is no single country which has fully implemented the Directive to date. At the same time, the most challenging deadlines are still ahead. Further to the orientation debate at the MIG-P in December 2015, it was agreed to translate the direction provided by the MIG-P into a renewed and revised Work Programme for the collaboration between the EU level partners and the Member States, the so-called MIWP.

The attached draft should be developed further over the coming weeks so that it can ultimately be discussed and agreed at the meeting of the permanent policy sub-group of the MIG (MIG-P) in June 2016.

You are invited to:

  • Take note of the document and discuss it at the April face-to-face meeting;
  • Comment in writing by 25 May at the latest; the comments will be compiled in a separate document as opinion of the MIG-T;
  • Mandate the Chair of the MIG-T to present the opinion of the MIG-T on this draft MIWP 2016-2020 to the MIG-P.

Please upload your written feedback as comments on this issue.

Dear MIG-T colleagues,

please find attached a draft of a renewed INSPIRE Maintenance and Implementation Work Programme (MIWP) for your review and feedback by 25 May.

The new MIWP will also be a main point for discussion at the upcoming face-to-face meeting in Ispra.

Please upload your written feedback as comments on this issue.

Best reagards,
Michael 

#3 Updated by Robert Tomas over 3 years ago

Dear MIG-T colleagues,

attached is a proposal for continuing (or not) the on-going and proposed actions from the current MIWP for your comments.

 

#4 Updated by Daniela Hogrebe over 3 years ago

Following the general feedback already given by the German MIG-P members we - as German MIG-T members - would like to add some specific comments from a more technical perspective.

The draft of the Maintenance and Implementation Work Programme (MIWP) 2016-2020 is currently more a strategic paper than a Work Programme that should be agreed first by MIG-P in June. However, we are very happy about the work done on concrete actions on and after the MIG-T meeting in April. Please find our comments on the proposals for the continuation of the MIWP actions as well as on the new proposed actions in the attached documents.

Nevertheless, we would like to add some remarks on the strategic part of the document.

The discussion in Ispra during the MIG-T meeting has given us the impression that it is not really clear what "priorisation" really means. The priorisation of themes given by the different annexes of the Directive wouldn't change. Figure 2 is very misleading if you use it without further explanation. Please clarify the meaning of "priorisation".

For defining new actions the priorisation template used for the current work programme should be kept, but could be adapted according to the new strategy. The list of criterias defined on page 9 are actually not sufficient to replace the template.

In general, we very much appreciate the introduction of working areas in the MIWP 2016-2020. This will lead to a more structured and target-oriented Work Programme. However, the working areas overlap each other and it is in some cases difficult to map actions to only one working area. Maybe the core actions in Annex 1 should not be ordered by working areas, but rather indicate in their description which working area(s) they support.

From our perspective, the action "INSPIRE Fitness for purpose" is a bit different than the other actions of the MIWP. It covers the whole working area, even the title is equal. It might help to tailor the action and concentrate first on "analysis for simplification of requirements". The outcome of this action could then lead to new concrete actions that can be added to the Work Programme 2016-2020 until the end of the year.

The action "Priority list of eReporting data sets" is very strong related to MIWP-21. We therefore propose to combine both actions into one. Additionally, the proposed time frame seems to be very ambitious (end 2016 for providing as-is datasets). Therefore, the work should be started as soon as possible.

Please consider that the above given feedback represents only the opinion of the German MIG-T members.

Best regards,

Daniela & Markus

Dear all, here are some comments from Sweden (MIG-P and MIG-T)

#6 Updated by Marie Lambois over 3 years ago

Dear MIG-T colleagues,

Here are some MIG-T comments from France. Enclosed are comments on the MIWP actions.

Comments on the work program:

Definition of implementation levels ( 4.1) might be a good idea but the example seems confusing. Data sharing is not equivalent to open data and providing access to the data (as-is) should be the basic level.

Action should be considered to provide Inspire-compliant tools. As an example, software able to set up an INSPIRE ATOM feed would be useful.

 

FITNESS FOR PURPOSE: Fitness for purpose MIWP has a too large scope to constitute a coherent MIWP. Subtasks should be identified and it seems to be the role of the MIG-T to identify them, not a MIWP.

The timescale does not seem compatible with current deadline: The first iteration will identify crucial issues by 2018 whereas Annex 1 has to be harmonized by 2017.

Another time-related issue is that requirements should come from MIWP-XX End-user applications so this MIWP would not be able to start in June 2016.

MONITORING & REPORTING 2019: Very detailed. The plan for 2016 seems ambitious.

PRIORITY LIST OF DATASETS: It is capital that eReporting experts are involved. Could be in relation with monitoring and reporting dashboard (dataset necessary for eReporting could be highlighted)

 

Best regards

Dear all, here are some comments from Latvia (MIG-P and MIG-T)

#11 Updated by Michael Lutz over 3 years ago

Dear colleagues,
 
Please find attached the reaction of the Austrian stakeholders for the planned MIWP 2016-2020. We have had a lot of discussion about the content, requirements and structure of this new positioning of activities within the implementation of INSPIRE. As the INSPIRE implementing programmes are defined for most of the stakeholders, especially for the larger ones, there is not much flexibility for resources and budgets. Therefore Austria comes up with a critical but consolitated response for the proposed MIWP 2016-2020:
 
1. General position of AT:
a. Generally, Austria supports any adoption of the MIWP as long as the pragmatic requirement exists, which means, that any results on test suites or legal mandated metadata adoptions have the very first priority.
b. Adoptions to specific future application schemas, which are not mature enough at the moment, are out of scope. This is to ensure legal stability. The technical development is not finished, it is not mature enough for the market. Therefore it is research. This is not a topic for the NMCAs nor the national geoproviders. It could be a topic for an application driven research funding.
c. We observe that the topic on monitoring and reporting is an important one, because it reduces effort done in the monitoring procedure and enhances metadata quality.
d. We observe the need to simplify data models in Annex III and therefore make these models applicable in the directives of environmental monitoring. INSPIRE could cover and support the domain specific monitoring even more if the data models are reduced to core geographies with persistent ID´s.
e. More activities in the development of commonly needed tools/implementations are needed in order to support the implementation and harmonisation (e.g. Registry, MD Editor, CSW Clients, …) and the validation of data and services.
 
2. AT position for the proposed priority areas (working area 1: fitness for purpose, working area 2: quick wins, working area 3: alignment with EU and international policies, working area 4: support to INSPIRE implementation):
a. For Austria, only the last point “Continued support to the legal mandated implementation” should be propagated. It has the highest priority. For the INSPIRE maintenance and data harmonisation there is a need for a corresponsive board and collaborative interaction between member states, stakeholders and even user groups, lead by the EC.
b. The other items (1 to 3) are nice to have, but they don`t contribute to the legal binding INSPIRE implementation time frame.
 
3. Detailed position to working area 1:
In order to make INSPIRE fit for purpose the top level deciders of the INSPIRE policy should cooperate with neighbouring domains and collect requirements. We assume that for the INSPIRE legal framework this has been done and is the fundament of the INSPIRE implementation done so far. If fitness for purpose collaborations at the top-level (DG ENV) are missing, we should stop our investments in INSPIRE.
Maybe our understanding of this topic is not right and needs some explanation.
 
4. Detailed position to working area 2:
If end user applications are needed and evaluated to be relevant, fundings or ventures should be provided in order to support their creation. This is mainly an action for the user groups of INSPIRE and not a topic for the data and service providers. End user applications are clearly out of scope of the INSPIRE regulation.
 
Best regards from Austria,
Markus Jobst

Dear all,

Hungarian comments to the document:

We  also appreciate the EC initiative and work on setting up of a new MIWP 2016-2020 which creates a framework for further actions. We generally agree with presented four working areas in the document,our point of view very important concept  are the "fitness to purpose" and the "end user applicaions", as a practical level of INSPIRE implementation. 

 

Sorry for our delay
