Together with our Tanzanian and international partners we have several ongoing research, education and development cooperation projects. These deal broadly with geospatial and ICT applications and address practical needs in the society.

We have science-practice expertise ranging from land change and participatory landscape planning to geospatial and ICT education, business and innovation development.

Our participatory, co-creative ways of working and long-term partnerships in Tanzania will ensure mutual learning and development of geospatial and ICT applications based on the needs in the society and in the institutions.
