Project Description: The aim of the eENVplus ( project is to integrate a huge amount of environmental data put at disposal by the involved national/regional environmental agencies and other public and private environmental stakeholders through the integration and harmonisation of existing services in order to answer to the requests of environmental monitoring and reporting drafted by the European, national and local policies and actions. The project doesn?t design new services but, starting from the results of previous European experiences (funded projects, good practices, EU/national/local experiences) it integrates them into an operational framework able to overcame the cross-border/languages barriers. eENVplus provide not only the ICT infrastructure but also the description and the support to make this infrastructure operational and profitable through the provision of an organisational model and a tutored training framework
