A Training Framework for INSPIRE/SDI

INSPIRE_logo1In the new EU legislative and policy context of environmental data and data management (INSPIRE, Copernicus, WFD, etc), the needs for training are growing and more oriented -also- to the understanding of the policies and their implementing rules.
In such a situation, training is needed as well about the new technologies and standards related to access and management of Geographical Information that are more and more exploited in a European dimension.

In this context, GISIG  has developed, starting from the VESTA-GIS Training Framework, an activity line seeking to integrate different training experiences and contents in order to provide the SDI Community with a variety of opportunities, according to a flexible and “interoperable” schema (see figure).

Training is an important component in the development of European projects related to INSPIRE:

  • To support on one side a common background knowledge in the partnership constituted by a variety of different organisations and skills
  • To support the exploitation of the results towards the respective target audiences, with the use of advanced training tools, based on eLearning platforms.
