A warm welcome to HUNAGI, the Hungarian Association for Geo-information,  who confirmed its interest to participate in the smeSpire Network, with special emphasis on sharing knowledge and experience as well as fostering network development and user involvement mobilizing the Hungarian SMEs and other market players.

HUNAGI was established in 1994 as non-profit, interdisciplinary umbrella GI association with the mission goal to foster and facilitate the availability, accessibility and usability of geospatial data in line with the INSPIRE directive. It has more than 60 institutional and organisation members from government, academia, SMEs and NGOs.

As far as the dissemination strategy is concerned, a project-oriented website http://smeSpirehu.blogspot.com is foreseen, but the blogs HUNAGI Events’ Calendar and HUNAGI Newsblog will also publish information on project related actions as it was posted first on 25 November 2012.

News on HUNAGI’s adhesion to smeSpire project and the recent JRC Questionnaire will be circulated to members and partners of HUNAGI in the Newsletter 18/2012 to be disseminated later this week. The project participation will be also on the agenda of the Presidential Bord Meeting of HUNAGI scheduled for December 12, 2012.
