It is exactly one year ago, on the FOSS4G Europe conference in Marne La Vallee, the European Local chapter was found.
As one of the first successful initiatives the chapter organised some activities to establish an INSPIRE version of the OSGeoLive environment.
Another important initiative is the launch during this FOSS4G conference of the OSGeo Europe eco system. Involved Industry partners, universities and governmental departments are bundling forces to promote open source on a collaborative booth. The first initiative is taken place on the INSPIRE Conference and 5 partners where willing to tell their story why they became involved in OSGeo on our common booth
