New HEI-ICI project has started

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 University of Turku (UTU), Finland, with four Tanzanian Universities: University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM), Ardhi University (ARU), State University of Zanzibar (SUZA) and Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA).
