The space/geospatial sector is of strategic importance since it already provides support to many European, national and sub-national policy domains. However, data and services are still used in a sub-optimal way. Especially the uptake of existing data and services and their integration in added value services for government, business and citizens could be improved a lot.
Several studies have revealed that the lack of specialized technical and scientific skills impedes this uptake by private companies and other actors. Moreover there is also a gap between the offerings of academic and of vocational education and training at both universities and private companies, and what is needed to make this uptake happen fluently.
EO4GEO will define a long-term and sustainable strategy to fill the gap between supply of and demand for space/geospatial education and training taking into account the current and expected technological and non-technological developments in the space/geospatial and related sectors.
EO4GEO will work in an multi- and interdisciplinary way and apply innovative solutions for its education and training actions including: case based and collaborative learning scenarios; learning-while-doing in a living lab environment; on-the-job training; the co-creation of knowledge, skills and competencies; etc.
We are pleased to announce that next EO4GEO Workshop on “Design of EO and related curricula” will be held in Warsaw (PL) on Wednesday the 27th November 2019, hosted by the Institute of Geodesy and Cartography (IGiK). […]
