An interesting study was presented on the role of spatial data infrastructure in the digital transformation of public administration, which aimed to analyse the role that SDI plays in the transformation of digital government, based on the experience of the 28 Member States and Norway. Tomislav Ciceli, Head of NSDI Division, held a lecture about the status of the NSDI establishment in Croatia and the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive.

The study visit, through the new findings of the project team, contributed to the strengthening of the National Contact Point's capacity, thereby ensuring a more efficient establishment of the NSDI and the implementation of INSPIRE.
