NEREUS organises a dedicated web session to present the EO4GEO initiative on Tuesday, 20th October 2020, 14.00 – 15.30h (CEST) with key invited speakers from the Earth Observation/Geospatial sectors!
The webinar has the overall objective to promote the EO4GEO sector skills alliance and its tools towards the Member regions and universities but also to get their views on the initiative.
The ERASMUS+ funded initiative EO4GEO (Towards an innovative strategy for skills development and capacity building in the space geo-information sector supporting Copernicus user uptake) under the Blueprint for Sectoral Cooperation on Skills schema aims to help bridging the skills gap in the space/geospatial sector by creating a strong alliance of players from the sector/community reinforcing the existing ecosystem and fostering the uptake and integration of space/geospatial data and services.
