Information from MIG-P meeting

  • Joeri provided information on the 5th MIG-P meeting that was held on 30 November – 1 December. Activities and work of subgroup 2016.2 were presented by JRC [PRES5]_MIWP action review and status report.pptx
  • On 2016.2 it was suggested that gathering of new metadata to feed monitoring and reporting indicators should be avoided. Metadata infrastructures in most Member States are mature and stable. A lot has already been invested in this. Breaking changes or new metadata requirements should be avoided as much as possible
  • The MIG members welcomed and supported the work on the country fiches and wanted to be involved in the further work on these fiches which could become a model for the 2019 INSPIRE reporting. COM (DG ENV and JRC) will finalise the work on the draft country fiches for all Member States. Before publishing any part of the country fiche, COM will share the draft country fiches with the Member States for review and possible feedback.

Feedback from sub-group members on template and set of questions
