Networking Activities (NA) are a core element of GEOLAB, culminating in workshops and other outreach events that foster a digital and In Real Life community, thereby providing a productive channel to communicate with the different stakeholder groups. GEOLAB will showcase effective data output and project results through our website and knowledge platform and will facilitate coordination and promote collaboration across Critical Infrastructure (CI) research and industry organisations.

November/December 2021

Upcoming workshops

The themed networking events for stakeholders and the reinforcement of partnerships are vital to GEOLAB in order to further explore research needs, identify high potential technologies and facilitate interaction. These will enable advances in capabilities of the Research Infrastructure and key projects will be presented to stimulate ideas for TA Projects.
