After weeks of hard work by the GEM team, its partners and the designers, we are proud to announce that we have developed an online GEM brochure. The brochure contains a lot of information about the programme itself, the MSc course and its tracks and other interesting need-to-knows! 

The GEM MSc programme was a gem. I did not only enjoy and progress on my education and scientific parts , but an opportunity to engage and study with people all over the world. Today, most of my class-mates are now my collaborators as we take Geoinformation Science and Earth Observation for Environmental Management and Modelling to another level.
