  2. collate, translate and exploit a Best Practice Catalogue in the management of environmental content;
  3. develop a multilingual package to train environmental data analysts in the maintenance and exploitation ofenvironmental data commons, and;
  4. create a network capable of transferring result-driven knowledge throughout Europe with research centres,environmental agencies, progressive technology providers and digital content providers.smeSpire offers the Commission an early integration of results for relevant programmes (ISA) directly into theknowledge base of geo-ICT SMEs.
