The main objective of the GIST-CroHE (Geographic Information Science and Technology in Croatian Higher Education) project is to revise the existing but not yet implemented MSc programme in Geographic Information Science & Technology (GISc&T) in accordance with the Bologna Declaration for the Faculty of Geodesy at the University of Zagreb (FG). Three universities (University of Salzburg, Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Faculty of Geodesy (FG) at the University of Zagreb), two individual experts from the University of West Hungary and the University of Manchester will work together on this project. Furthermore it is supported by the Croatian Ministry of Science, Education and Sports. The programme is scheduled to start in the Autumn semester of 2008, i.e. at the beginning of the 2nd year of the proposed project, and will be run mainly by FG teaching staff using modern equipment and materials acquired through the project. The revision of the MSc curriculum in GISc&T will focus on the contents, teaching methods, and form of delivery as well as laying foundation for life long learning in the respective field. This project is seen as the most significant effort in substantiating cooperation between the Partner Country member and the EU partners at HE level, and at the later stage at research level.

The main objective will be realized through 5 types of activities leading to 5 types of outcomes: (1) Development of an updated curriculum in GISc&T for the MSc programme. (2) Train The Trainer (TTT) on teaching methodology for faculty at all three partner universities. (3) Implementation of the updated MSc programme at Faculty of Geodesy (FG). (4) Train The Trainer (TTT) and student training combining content and teaching methods. (5) Acquisition of GSc&T related equipment for FG.
