ISPRS Symposium Cross-Border Education for Global Geo-information - The Netherlands

ISPRS Mid Term Symposium of Commission VI


The spatial processes affecting the sustainable development of our living environment are of a supra-national and even a global scale. Geo-ICT plays an increasing role in the management of these processes. We also see the development of global delivery networks for Geo-ICT products and services. Partners in these chains must have a common understanding of the specifications and conditions for product and service delivery.

Young people in particular should be stimulated to choose for a professional career in this field. They should form part of an international professional community ready to engage and collaborate with their highly qualified and experienced colleagues for life-long learning.

International partnerships and consortia for cross border education provide a new setting for the education in this context. Web-based education and distance learning approaches and e-delivery of educational services are developing very fast. Partnerships for developing of international curricula require the possibility of the transfer of credit points between educational institutions.
