The ITC Research programme defines the scientific scope of knowledge development, which is underpinned by the scientific expertise of ITC and tailored to the international research agenda.
It addresses problems related to the management of space and resources and problems related to the provision of relevant, timely and reliable geospatial information through the execution of demand-driven research projects in its six research themes, led by ITC professors and supported by expert staff members. Many of the research projects are carried out by registrants in the Graduate programme studying for a PhD degree.
The ITC Research Programme is formulated as a number of interlinked research themes.
