The Week of Geospatial Information (GI)-Education for the Future

organized within the framework of four Erasmus+ projects in the geospatial domain:


On 25th-28th January 2021.

The enhancement of digital skills and competences nowadays is high on the agenda of the European Commission and many member states. Among these digital skills also are the many skills required to work with geospatial data and technologies. Higher education institutions in Europe have been teaching and developing these geographic information (GI) skills for many decades, continuously updating their curricula and implementing innovative teaching methods. The Week of GI-Education for the Future aims to bring together teachers, experts, practitioners and students to present and discuss recent advances in GI-education and think about GI-education for the future.

The Week of GI-Education for the Future highlighted the challenges and opportunities of GI-education in preparing the workforce of the future. Actors and organizations involved or interested in GI-education participated in this event to learn more about innovative practices, collaborative efforts and anticipating future skills needs, and to share their own experiences and thoughts on GI-education for the future.
