EuroGeographics Focuses on Policy Participation with New Appointment

EuroGeographics has appointed an international relations expert to enable Europe’s National Mapping, Cadastral and Land Registry Authorities to contribute to policy initiatives and legislation.

 

Dominik Kopczewski joins the international not-for-profit association as Policy Development Manager with a remit to develop positions and responses that reflect the collective views of its members. In addition to monitoring and advising on national and international policy issues, he will also be responsible for liaising with European and global organisations within the geospatial and land information sectors.

 

Commenting on his new position, Mr Kopczewski said: “I am delighted to be joining an organisation representing 61 organisations from 46 countries covering the whole of geographical Europe.”

 

“Our representation strategy is based upon the principle of constructive participation. This enables us to demonstrate members’ relevance by delivering value to policy development and legislative programmes in those areas where they have a track record, significant expertise and a legitimate interest.”

 

Mick Cory, Secretary General and Executive Director, EuroGeographics said: “Dominik not only brings extensive experience to his new role as Policy Development Manager, but as Chair of our Policy Knowledge Exchange Network also provides a members’ perspective on our work. We all look forward to working with him to further the wide-ranging benefits delivered by our members’ data and services.”

 

Mr Kopczewski previously held a number of positions at the Head Office of Geodesy and Cartography, Poland, including coordinating international relations and working on the transposition of the INSPIRE Directive. He was also actively involved in the implementation of the national spatial data infrastructure, the National Spatial Information Council. 

 

Since 2014, he has been Chair of EuroGeographics Policy Knowledge Exchange Network (KEN) which focuses on developments such as satellite space programmes, geodetic positioning, data sharing and security, and location technologies.

 

Mr Kopczewski holds a Master of Arts in Spatial Management from Warsaw University and postgraduate qualifications in both international relations and diplomacy, and public relations.
