Call for abstracts: data ecosystems and spatial data infrastructure – facilitators for data value creation

25 May 2023

The Danish Agency for Data Supply and Infrastructure, EuroSDR, KU Leuven, TU Delft IGN France and DAFAGO are organising a workshop on DATA ECOSYSTEMS AND SPATIAL DATA INFRASTRUCTURE, on 12-13 December, 2023. It will take place at MBK, Pilestraede 61, 1112 Copenhagen, Denmark, located about 500 meters from S-Train station going to and from the airprot and central rail station.

Workshop description
The world is becoming more and more data driven. There are many ways to collect, analyze and disseminate data, and data ecosystems are among the most important environments that we have for facilitating this. Spatial data is one of the data types in data ecosystems, and data ecosystems play a key role in further value creation of the spatial data created, maintained and shared in the SDI.

The workshop aims at providing insights in data ecosystems in the context of spatial data infrastructure (SDI), identifying concepts and challenges to uncover relevant research topics, encouraging development of best practice recommendations and spur collaboration on use cases across domains and sectors. The workshop will also make room for networking and knowledge exchange among the participants.

Call for Abstracts:
Abstracts may come from business developers, researchers, data providers and users with an interest in ecosystems and spatial data.

Potential content might address:

·        The role that SDI might play in future value creation

·        How data ecosystems can contribute to a demand driven approach to data creation, maintenance, and dissemination

·        How value creation can be secured for all participants in the ecosystem (commercial, government, scientific, citizen)

·        How to create strong incentives – Business- and financial models

·        What are the governance mechanisms to strengthen the data circulation in the ecosystem?

·        Any other topic somehow related to the topic is more than welcome.

If you wish to attend and contribute to this workshop please submit an abstract by 15/09/2023 to

The abstracts should include the presentation title, presenter name, link with the workshop topic and explain in a few text blocks the main content of the presentation. The maximum size of the abstract is 1 page.

The abstracts will be published in the indexed Official Publication Series of EuroSDR.
A summary report with findings, presentations and potential research topics will be drafted after the workshop.

Duration of presentation 15 min. + additional 5 min for Q/A.


Registration for the workshop will open in late September. We will limit the number of participants to 25 in order to better facilitate dialogue and networking.
