UNIGIS at Geospatial World Forum, Rotterdam

UNIGIS International again was invited to this high-profile annual industry flagship event - GWF'13, representing the worldwide scope of geospatial distance education in an exhibit booth. Frequented by alumni from across the globe, current students and interested leaders from the GIS community, the UNIGIS booth coordinated by Dr. Shahnawaz with strong support from UNIGIS Amsterdam
turned out to be a popular meeting place.

Among the visitors was a delegation from the South Ural State University in Chelyabinsk, led by Rector Alexander Shestakov with his colleagues from the Research Educational Center 'GeoInformation Systems'.

During the exhibit days, most interest in UNIGIS was expressed by corporate leaders exploring options for further developing their employees' skills. Academic qualifications are clearly recognized as a long-term career driver, institutions aiming at upgrading and retaining key staff increasingly invest in continuing education  under the 'lifelong learning' paradigm.
