I would like to know what Geospatial server you use and what standard compliant is used (OGC web services, INSPIRE, etc.), and also the metadata schema for dataset provided by the portal.
Thank you in advance!

Seems that the portal you refer to is the Maps&Graphs section of the EEA Data Service:[…]ll&c0=15&b_start=0.
The static maps available from our Maps & Graphs section of the EEA Data Service are prepared using an ESRI product (ArcMap) and most of these maps are made to support our publications.
Kind regards.
