UNIGIS International network conference in Salzburg
With hundreds of graduates each year, and thousands of highly qualified alumni, UNIGIS is making a substantial contribution to the success of a ‘geospatial view’ across many disciplines and industries. The model of a ‘Virtual University of GIScience’, integrating the teaching capacity and competence from a worldwide selection of departments has evolved over more than 20 years from an ambitious initiative into a widely recognized and highly regarded set of international qualifications.
This year a new board of directors for UNIGIS International was elected. Chaired by Josef Strobl from the University of Salzburg, UNIGIS for the next three years will be led by Jasper Dekkers (VU Amsterdam), Gemma Boix (U de Girona), Graham Smith (Manchester MU) and Jacek Kozak (JU Krakow).
