Please provide information on your educational content, use the searchable Educational Content Inventory Catalogue.

Important note: None of the content is considered "official" OSGeo material, and none of it has been peer-reviewed by anyone affiliated with OSGeo. At this juncture, we are simply trying to inventory educational material that is available through our participant community. Anything of interest to the OSGeo education community is welcome.

    • COST proposal
      • (from Ari's email) The proposal needs a right scope and domain. Domain could be "Earth System Science and Environmental Management" (I could find one GIS related action) or "Information and Communication Technologies" (I could not find any actions directly related to FOSS - which may tell something or not). The proposal needs a main objective. The objective could be for example "enhance academic relevance/use/usability of existing free and open source geospatial (FOSS4G) software and develop methods and workflows for increasing the impact and exploitation of FOSS4G emerging from academia". That could perhaps have the right span.
      • There's "Jornades de SIG Lliure" in Girona March 21-23 and, although it is in Spanish and Catalan, perhaps we could use that for a workshop and meeting(?). http://www.sigte.udg.edu/jornadassiglibre/
