The ICT-ENSURE project has provided an important starting point for the development of a European Research Area in the field of ICT for Environmental Sustainability. ERA activities can be seen as an enabler for the effort to build a SISE, a Single Information Space in Europe for the Environment.

All associated deliverables as well the Final Summary can be found in the Deliverables area.

At the current state no standardized structure, where environmental information is organized in a uniform manner can be found, so the conceptual meta-model of ICT-ENSURE offers an organizing principle for access to environmental information.

Additionally ICT-ENSURE sketches building blocks of an integrated information space in Europe by discussing target group specific user needs, offers examples of good practice cases and sketches boundary conditions for an environmental information space also touching the IT related challenges. Through the identification of the main user requirements in the environmental field together with the ICT related research demands, a new basis has been created for future inter-disciplinary communication and cooperation efforts. These efforts are supported by the broad reference framework, based on the DPSIR framework that has been developed in order to provide a broad-reaching research agenda that actors in field can share as a common basis for cooperation. All this contributes to the long-term vision of SISE to offer policy and decision makers, researchers, practitioners and the public an ICT-enabled space of collaboration with access to free available information and services related to environmental sustainability.
