Founded by Central European University (CEU), American University of Central Asia (AUCA), and Bard College, GeoHub is an open platform project developing the capacity of Open Society University Network (OSUN) members in using the latest geospatial methods and technologies in their core research and teaching disciplines.
The project has several components, including reinforcement of the OSUN network by offering to its members online and onsite geospatial courses, organization of train-the-trainers workshops, and joint professional training programs with certificates in applied geospatial technologies, focusing on practical, real-world challenges and potential solutions in academic research and public service. Organizing internships for OSUN students with external geo-focused partners is another component of the project.
GeoHub project relies on using the existing facilities, resources, and networks of the Systems Laboratory of the Environmental Science and Policy Department at CEU. Furthermore, the project activities are coordinated in collaboration with the relevant UN agencies, international organizations, global IT leaders, and other stakeholders active in the development and practical application of geospatial tools and methods.
