INSPIRE in Practice is a key piece of the new INSPIRE Knowledge Base website helping stakeholders to share approaches to implementing and using INSPIRE.

It is a collaborative platform that brings together different players involved in INSPIRE in a single place, facilitating the exchange of geospatial know-how and expertise that they have accumulated over time while dealing with INSPIRE and the various solutions that can be used in practice.

More specifically, the platform is targeted at INSPIRE implementers, solution providers, and end-user application developers.

If you are one of these stakeholders, you can participate by sharing your experiences of implementing INSPIRE or by adding to the dedicated tools and apps catalogues with entries that contribute to both the production or use of INSPIRE. The platform is open to all, where you can simply learn from others' knowledge by browsing, asking questions or commenting.
