Geospatial information technologies have their roots primarily in three distinct areas: geosciences, computational technologies, and information science.
The three partner sites represent centers of excellence in these areas, recognized at the European and global levels.
The geoscientific and quantitative foundations of Geoinformatics at Münster, the computer science and technology skills taught at Castellón, and the mathematical and statistical methodologies emphasized in Lisbon complement each other in an ideal way to provide a rounded, but compact education in this interdisciplinary technological field.
The composition is a complementary approach of the partners’ different research and educational profiles in an area where each partner is a leader in their own country and recognized internationally.
The Masters program is funded by the European Commission within the Erasmus+/Erasmus Mundus program. The funding periods are September 2012 - March 2018, grant agreement FPA-2012-0191, and September 2016 - March 2021, grant agreement 2016-2054.
