The European network of GMES Regional Contact Offices (RCO) has been set up with the aim of strengthening inter-regional dialogue and raising awareness of GMES at the regional scale met on 8 October 2012 in Brussels, in the Representation office of the State of Baden-Württemberg.

Six GMES Regional Contact Offices have been set up and are now operational in the regions of Azores, Basilicata, Bremen, East Midlands, Lombardia, Midi-Pyrénées-Aquitaine, each acting  as a link between the potential end-users in each region and the providers of GMES services.

The meeting “Bringing GMES and Regions Closer was attended by around 60 people representing research organisations, local authorities, environmental institutions from the regions as well as the GMES Bureau, DG REGIO, DG Enterprise, Committee of the Regions, EC and EU parliamentary offices.

The event was organized as part of the GMES4Regions initiative (powered by DORIS_Net and GRAAL Coordination Actions which are funded by the Seventh Research Framework Programme), with the support of NEREUS (Network of European Regions Using Space Technologies).
