GGOS intends to initiate R&D projects with the goal to foster direct contribution to GEO Work Plan Tasks. GGOS has established a Working Group on Geo Relations, which has the charter to ensure information flow between GEO and GEOSS on the one side and the scientific community contributing to GGOS and IAG.
GGOS also brings science communities to relevant GEO Workshops and organizes science-oriented workshops relevant to GEO in cooperation with GEO and other organizations. An example is the workshop "Towards a roadmap for future satellite gravity missions" (see the Workshop Page for more details), which was held on September 30 to October 2, 2009. At major scientific conferences, GGOS organizes specific sessions related to GGOS and invites routinly presentations which address the GGOS contributions to GEOSS. These presentations inform the scientific audience about GEOSS.
