The Earth observation (EO) and Geoinformatics (GI) sector is rapidly evolving due to technological advances, growing collections of open data (e.g. Copernicus), and a broader user base. This evolution requires the adaptation of EO/GI training for matching the demanded skills on the market.
EO4GEO invites all organisations operating in the space/geospatial sector to participate in the following surveys on supply and demand of education and training in EO/GI. By participating in the surveys you will contribute to the delivery of a detailed skills intelligence in the space/geospatial sector and to the definition of the long term sector skills strategy.
The online survey is divided in two parts:
Survey on supply of EO and GI education and training
The survey focuses on the supply of academic and Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Europe in the space/geospatial sector.
It is finalized at an analysis of existing and planned training educational offer in the sector and at identifying the organizations (from academy and from the private sector) which can contribute to the improvement of the skills for the user uptake of Copernicus data and services.
Survey on demand for EO and GI skills and occupational profiles
The objectives of the demand survey are to better understand the demands of current professional workforce and to highlight skills required on the EO/GI sector in the future.
Your participation in the survey will support research, academic institutions and companies to identify solutions to overcome present and future skills gaps and skills mismatches.
Many thanks in advance!
