'Copernicus Master in Digital Earth' - New E+ EMJMD Programme

The 'Copernicus Master in Digital Earth - CDE' initiative, a joint Erasmus+ Key Action 1 project, has been kicked off at the coordinator's site 'Z_GIS' in Salzburg. This joint study programme responds to the current need of highly qualified specialists in the fields Geoinformatics / Geo and Earth Observation / Space. The two year full-time integrated Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) Programme will start in the academic year 2019/2020. A first call for application of admission and E+ scholarships will be published soon.

One starting place for all students aims to establish a strong common denominator and core Geoinformatics competencies for the CDE Master of Science Study Programme. MSc students start their studies at the University of Salzburg, Department of Geoinformatics - Z_GIS for the first two semesters, before continuing towards developing a special flavor at one of the partner universities:
Jointly, these tracks offer outstanding candidates a pathway towards excellence in advanced Geoinformatics addressing the Copernicus and Digital Earth missions and objectives.

The consortium currently consists of thirteen partners, with three core academic partners in Europe who are offering double degrees, and several associated partners, who bring added value to faculty and students: Higher Education Institutions provide research facilities and supervision, Industry partners provide internships and scholarships and UNIGIS International provides outreach to students and scholarships.
