  18. 18. 18/10/2012   18  Leveraging SMEs’ Strength for INSPIREGWF 2013 16/05/2013 Our  experience  with  INSPIRE  1   •  The FreeGIS.net project allowed us to study and implement new technologies to meet INSPIRE requirements •  Through the participation to conferences and OGC we met new partners and created a network to meet changing requirements of market •  However all this was possible because of the use of open technologies. Through Free and Open Source software we are actors in the application of INSPIRE and not spectators
