[Update: 28 June 2016] CONTINUATION OF COOPERATION ON SEIS WITH EU NEIGHBOURS:
Two new 4-year projects (February 2016 - January 2020) implementing the Shared Environmental Information System principles and practices in the Eastern Partnership countries (ENI SEIS II East) and the ENP South Region (ENI SEIS II South) are now being implemented by the EEA.
Two new project websites are currently being developed:
ENI SEIS II East: http://eni-seis.eionet.europa.eu/east
ENI SEIS II South: http://eni-seis.eionet.europa.eu/south
In the meanwhile, some key projects documents can also be found through the links below:

The ENPI-SEIS project, implemented by the European Environment Agency since 2010, gets to end on 31st March 2015. The aim of this project was to engage countries of the European Neighbourhood in regional cooperation to improve national capacities for managing and sharing environmental data and information.
The main achievements and outcomes of this cooperation can be found in:
the regional assessment: Horizon 2020 Mediterranean Report ‘Toward shared environmental information systems’ and,
the outcomes of the cooperation: East Region Synthesis report ‘Building SEIS with the Eastern Neighbourhood’.
The ENPI-SEIS team would like to thank all colleagues and partners for the efforts invested in this common endeavour of bringing SEIS to the European Neighbourhood.
Special acknowledgement goes to the National Focal Points in the partner countries for their great work and determination!
We will keep you informed about the process of further continuation of the cooperation as soon as there will be an outcome of the negotiations with the European Commission.
The project web site http://enpi-seis.pbe.eea.europa.eu/ will remain open for consultation as well as the project mail box: firstname.lastname@example.org will remain active for your enquiries in the future, so don’t hesitate to drop a line.
We are looking forward to meeting you soon and continuing our fruitful cooperation.
For now, once again thank you very much, and see you soon!
The European Environment Agency (EEA) was assigned by European Commission Directorate-General EuropeAid Co-operation Office (EC/DG EuropeAid) to carry out a project for gradually extending the Shared Environment Information System (SEIS) principles to the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) South and East neighbours and the Russian Federation. The ENPI-SEIS project aims to improve environmental monitoring and data and information sharing by gradually extending the SEIS principles to the European neighbourhood.
The main outcomes of the ENPI-SEIS project will address the three SEIS components — cooperation, content and infrastructure — through enhanced networking with the national capacities on environmental information. Furthermore, it will promote open, public access to information through compatible and freely available exchange tools.
The overall goal of the project is to promote the protection of the environment in the countries of the ENPI area. In order to achieve this, the project aims towards a set of measurable and specific objectives:
