The Programme is a combined partnership of four different Universities.
GEM integrates academic excellence from four leading universities and their respective MSc programmes in geospatial science in a strategic partnership to support innovative academic practices. Each partner addresses different aspects of human-environment interaction challenges with applied geospatial science:
- Natural resources management at ITC-University of Twente, the Netherlands (ITC)
- Ecosystems and the environment at Lund University, Sweden (LU)
- Agriculture and forestry at Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium (UCLouvain)
- Socio-ecological systems and urban planning at the University of Tartu, Estonia (UT)
The GEM programme includes several associate partners around the world from research, industry, public sector and non-governmental organisations. They participate in joint events, internships and MSc theses, and bring real-world challenges and stakeholders into the classroom. Collaborating with these partners is designed to train students to become high-skilled professionals in geo-information (GI) and Earth observation (EO) science with a solid foundation in applied socio-environmental/socio-ecological modelling.
Information on associate partners will be added here soon.
