The EuroGeoss Web Seminar on “Multi-disciplinary interoperability: a Brokerage Approach” is planned for Thursday, Oct. 6, at 15:00 UTC.
The seminar will focus on cyber(e)-infrastructure design and development to facilitate and support interoperability among different Earth Observation disciplines and support Decision Makers. The event will last about an hour, with time for questions at the end. It will be presented by Stefano Nativi & Mattia Santoro.

The seminar will cover:
1.    An introduction of Multi-disciplinary interoperability;
2.    Main challenges to develop a multi-disciplinary cyber(e)-Infrastructure;
3.    The Brokerage approach -and comparison with other possible approaches
4.    The EuroGEOSS project achievements: the discovery, access, and semantic Brokers
