I am happy to inform you that the International Master Programme Cartography – our joint master degree in cooperation with TU Munich, TU Vienna and TU Dresden focusing on modern cartography – has been selected for Erasmus+ by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency. Out of 58 submitted applications, we are one of 9 successful joint master degrees in the “Erasmus Mundus” section.
This means that the International Master in Cartography will be supported by the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme, allowing also the University of Twente to join in. The 5 year grant will help to support a preparatory year (starting in October 2014), followed by three student intakes (2015, 2016, 2017).
The evaluation pointed out the excellence of the exisiting teams in Munich, Vienna and Dresden as well as the professional structure and cooperation. It was also highlighted that the “unique selling point” in offering a Master Programme in Cartography is seen as a most successful strategy.
