We have received funding from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland (HEI-ICI programme) for a project “Geospatial and ICT capacities in Tanzanian Higher Education Institutions (Geo-ICT)”. The project is about improving the quality of higher education and research environment in geospatial and ICT capacities, and strengthening the role and relevance of these sectors in the development of the society.
This project is a shared effort between the Department of Geography and Geology and Department of Future Technologies of UTU with four Tanzanian Universities: University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM), Ardhi University (ARU), StateUniversity of Zanzibar (SUZA) and Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA). The duration is from March 2017 to March 2020 (3 yrs).
The Kick-Off event of the project was organised in Dar es Salaam on May 17-19th, 2017.
