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:
- GeoData Science – Specialization Track @ University of South Brittanny, Département Informatique
- Geovisualisation & Geocommunication – Specialization Track @ Palacky University Olomouc, Faculty of Science, Department of Geoinformatics.
Jointly, these tracks offer outstanding candidates a pathway towards excellence in advanced Geoinformatics addressing the Copernicus and Digital Earth missions and objectives.
