gSmartRegion - Z_GIS showcasing regional projects

Vice Governor Dr Astrid Rössler and Techno-Z CEO
Mag Werner Pfeiffenberger with Prof Josef Strobl. 
While Z_GIS' geoinformatics methodology and applications research is worldwide in scope and recognition with cooperations and projects reaching into most corners of the globe, our efforts to generate new knowledge and scientific results are strongly anchored in and around Salzburg.

In an event celebrating our 10-year anniversary at Techno-Z Itzling, our researchers today were presenting a broad collection of projects reaching from natural resources and risk management to foundations for conservation efforts, spatial planning, remote sensing for monitoring change, public participation, climate change impact mitigation and adaptation, facilitation of sustainable mobility and other themes closely connected with the spatial aspects of society, economy and environment.

Presentations and subsequent discussions were highly appreciated by visitors from public administration and government, led by Salzburg Vice Governor Dr Astrid Rössler, representatives of the business community like Dr Markus Eisl from GIS-Cluster Salzburg / eoVision and research partners from e.g. the Berchtesgaden National Park. The 'gSmartRegion' event was co-hosted with the Techno-Z Salzburg management, with Mag. Werner Pfeiffenberger encouraging further exchanges within the local business network.

Posters presented today are available online: http://zgisalzburg.blogspot.com
