The GISIG Association, giCASES coordinator, as well as the giCASES partners KU Leuven, University of Salzburg and Politecnico di Milano participated last October 2016 in the Call for Expression of interest to be part of the new Copernicus Academy Network, an initiative by DG Growth aimed at promoting user uptake activities.

We are pleased to announce that all applications by the organizations above have been approved and this represents a unique dissemination and exploitation opportunity for the entire giCASES Network.

Key outcome of the network would be the development of interdisciplinary and international masters and educational classes, new skills boosting programmes for vocational training, industry-university traineeships agreements, spin-offs creation, best practices building and reference tools and materials.
