It is our intention to disseminate project information and communicate results with a broad audience. To achieve this, we are launching e-Newsletter. It should deliver information about our activities, events, results and activities tied to the project undertaken by project partners.
We hope that BESTSDI Newsletter will encourage broader discussion about teaching SDI at the institu-tions of higher education, and therefore, we are also open to reader’s opinions and discussion.
Summer school for the project “Western Balkans Academic Education Evolution and Professional’s Sustainable Training for Spatial Data Infrastructures – BESTSDI” will take place in Split, Croatia on July 3-7. We are honored to invite you to participate at this summer school, which will take place at the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Architecture and Geodesy, University of Split.
