Taking the Presidency over the Council of European Union Republic of Croatia promoted slogan, calling for a strong Europe in the world of challenges reflects our awareness of issues our society is facing today.

Croatian Presidency recognized Space data, services and technologies as one of the key elements which should foster sustainable economic growth and support overall welfare of the society.

Ministry of Science and Education prepares thematic priorities and relevant events during the Presidency of the Council of the EU in the area of education, research and space.

European space program flagships Copernicus and Galileo are one of the major contributor to the global use of space data and services that benefit the society and therefore actively supported by the Croatian Presidency.





EO4GEO is an Erasmus+ Sector Skills Alliance gathering 26 partners from 13 EU countries, most of which are part of the Copernicus Academy Network. Be they from academia, public or private sector, they are all active in education and training fields of the space /geospatial sectors.

Technological progress and globalisation offer tremendous opportunities for innovation, job creation and growth. This also requires people to acquire new skills in order to drive and support change. But which skills are they, and how can we build and shape the workforce of the future? This is where EO4GEO steps in.

EO4GEO aims to bridge the skills gap between supply and demand of education and training in the space / geospatial sectors, fostering the uptake and integration of space / geospatial data and services in broad range of application domains. The project works in multi and interdisciplinary way and apply innovative solutions for its education and training actions: case-based and collaborative scenarios; learning-while-doing in al living lab environment; on-the-job training and co-creation of knowledge, skills and competences.

The project started on January 2st, 2018; it will run for 4 years, closely collaborating with DG GROW and DG EMPLOYMENT to reach its strategic objective.
