The "Asociacion de los Servicios de Geología y Minería Iberomaericanos" (ASMGI) has agreed that the Servicio Geológico Minero Argentino (SEGEMAR) would host the 2009 OneGeology Operational Management Meeting on Thursday July 2 and Friday July 3 in Buenos Aires.
21 European geological surveys have submitted a 3.25€ million OneGeology-Europe proposal to the EC for funding under the eContentplus programme. The proposal has received a very positive technical and scientific evaluation and subject to negotiations to take place in Luxembourg on 10th April, is looking likely to be funded. The project could start as early as June 2008.
The meeting was attended by 17 participants and included discussion and action on the following topics: funding and support, communication and website, organisation, governance, roles and responsibilities, and planning for the 33rd IGC.
Why did we choose to hold the OneGeology meeting at the Place de la République?
- Liberty, Equality, Fraternity is the motto of the French Republic
- What about OneGeology?
- Liberty to access geologic maps,
- Equality of all participants in the initiative,
- Fraternity through the Buddy system,
- ... and Interoperability
Eleven directors of Commonwealth geological surveys met at BGS in Keyworth. As part of their visit they were given a presentation on OneGeology. As a result several new nations are now participating in OneGeology.
