We are pleased to inform the EO/GI community about the final version of the Space-Geospatial Sector Skills Strategy
The needs of the sector are constantly evolving, and we believe that helping the industry to find workers with the right skills and ensuring that they acquire the skills they need to find productive employment is key to the sector economic innovation, growth and competitiveness, therefore EO4GEO aims to define a long-term and sustainable strategy to fill the gap between supply of and demand for the EO/GI education and training.
Under the CopHub.AC project http://www.cophub-ac.eu/, EARSC is running a new competition to recognise and reward outstanding collaboration in public-private partnerships for the Copernicus user-uptake. Specifically, Academia and Companies (in partnership) will be encouraged to submit a proposal for cooperation or present an already established collaboration achievement “from Research & Development to Innovation & Market”. The winner partnership will be recognized and promoted by EARSC and receive guidance on how to embed that cooperation into EuroGEOSS.
GEO and Amazon Web Services collaborate to provide cloud credits for projects that improve understanding of our planet
GEO member agencies and research organizations from developing countries are now able to access cloud services to help with the hosting, processing and analysis of big data about the Earth to inform decisions for sustainable development.
The EO4GEO project is inviting experts in the Earth Observation / Geographic Information sectors to participate in the process of developing a Body of Knowledge (BoK) for GI and EO. We are looking for professionals ready to support the description of the particular concepts (topics) in different inter-related knowledge areas, by commenting and contributing to the elaboration of the relevant texts.
The project, which is now in its first steps (Preparing the space/geospatial sectors skills strategy), intends to identify gaps and shortages between GI and EO training offer.
ELSEVIER call for papers for a special issue on 'Earth Observation for the Sustainable Development Goals'
