"StRATEGy" together with Argentine partner institutions jointly organized a 3-day workshop “3Geo - International Workshop on Geosciences, Geoinformatics and Geoservices”. The main objective of the workshop was to stimulate interaction and synergies between researchers from the Earth sciences, Geoinformatics, and the fields of Environmental and Natural hazards, in order to foster an improvement of geo-data access in online-available data bases. The workshop was supported by the Argentine Ministry of Defense, the Argentine Ministry of Science and the German Embassy in Buenos Aires.

More then 80 participants from academia, industry and public authorities followed the invitation and jointly developed new strategies in order to better collaborate. Also, concrete new research and application projects were designed, which now will be presented to Argentine and German funding agencies. "StRATEGy" will use the results of the workshop to extend its collaboration with Argentine institutions like the Instituto de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas para la Defensa (CITEDEF), the Comisión Nacional de Actividades Espaciales (CONAE) and the Servicio Geológico Minero Argentino (SEGEMAR).
