Bonn, Germany, May 9-11, 2011

Workshop Program

Program Overview: During the first day, 3 plenary session introduced the EGIDA project to the participants, discussed the role of the Stakeholder Network and Advisory Board related to EGIDA and the implementation of the GEO Science and Technology Road Map, and prepared the Breakout session scheduled for the second day. During the morning of the second day, parallel breakout sessions gave the Stakeholder Network and Advisory Board the opportunity to address their specific activities and contributions. During the afternoon of that day, two parallel sessions addressed topical issues that may or may not concern both the Stakeholder Network and Advisory Board.

During the third day, plenary sessions provided a synthesis of the outcomes of the Breakout sessions, discussed steps toward the implementation of the GEO Science and Technology Road Map, and considered specific activities and contributions for the post-Workshop period.
