Starting with January 2018, 26 partners from 16 countries - including Z_GIS/University of Salzburg - and initially 22 associated partners will collaborate in the the new EO4GEO project, which is focusing on education and training in the space/gesopatial sector.

EO4GEO - Towards an innovative strategy for skills development and capacity building in the space geo-information sector supporting Copernicus user uptake is coordinated by the GISIG association and will run for four years.

The project aims at bridging the skills gap between supply and demand of education and training in the space/geospatial sector. The collaboration partners are focusing on reinforcing the existing ecosystem and fostering the uptake and integration of space/geospatial data and services in end-user-applications.

EO4GEO is an Erasmus+ sector skills alliance gathering partners from the education/training and space/geospatial sectors . Most of the partners from academia, private and public sector are part of the Copernicus Academy Network. The project has been approved by the EU Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA).
