A consortium was formed to implement the TIGER Capacity Building Facility.

The Capacity Building Facility (TCBF 2) is implemented now by a consortium of four partners:

  1. Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC), University of Twente, the Netherlands;
  2. Technical University Delft (TUD) the Netherlands;
  3. Flemish Institute for Technological Research, VITO, Belgium (go to VITOs TIGER CBF page) and
  4. Institute for Statistics and Geo-Information, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, ISEGI-UNL, Portugal.

Twenty research projects get support in the Capacity Building Facility.


Furthermore, three Regional Offices are established in the time span of 2009-2012:

  1. AGRHYMET Regional Centre in Niger;
  2. Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD) in Kenya and
  3. Water Research Commission (WRC) in South Africa.
