The goal of the first part of WP2 “Development of curriculum” is to develop the learning material to be included in the project curriculum as specified in D1.4-5 and to prepare the partner universities in providing courses according to their needs. This work will address both the data management students/faculties and the SDI user students/faculties.

Learning materials available at partner universities and external open resources will be collected (T1.2), prepared and refined and adapted to the project curriculum as specified in D1.4. Three sub-groups will be:

         Sub-group A – Geodesy and Geoinformatics

         Sub-group B – Technical Faculties (Mining, Geology, Computer Sciences, Civil Engineering)

         Sub-group C – Agriculture, Food Science, Forestry, Geography

LLL courses will be developed for professionals in all target sectors. As a baseline, the training material developed in the LINKVIT project will be used.  Similar as in T.2.1 the work will be organized in two sub-groups in accordance to their study program:

          Sub-group A – Geodesy and Geoinformatics

          Sub-group B – All other study programs

Specification, acquisition and installation of equipment needed to conduct the courses as specified in the project curricula. A special task group will define the specifications for the part of the equipment identical for all partners, and define package of equipment appropriate for courses implementation in accordance to profile of respective study program.

During a summer-school, which will be organized at the premises of UNISt in Split, teachers from the partner universities will be trained in the English versions of the courses included in the project curriculum. Task group will prepare summer schools program, materials, lecturers and technical details important for their successful execution.

The quality of summer schools and teachers will be evaluated by attendees and incorporated in the evaluation and monitoring reports.

Selected parts of the teaching material will be adapted to national contexts (translated, enriched with national specificities) and published. This activity will be organized through the project, conducted by the appointed sub-group but executed by partners from partner countries due to the fact of their knowledge of national and professional specificities in their countries.
