Spatial skills

The ELISE action, among its knowledge transfer tasks, supports the promotion of "spatial thinking" through courses aimed at different audiences and entry levels that seek to increase the level of spatial literacy and facilitate the acquisition of spatial technical skills.

The courses developed are:

INSPIRE training platform

Course on Location enabled Digital Government Transformation

 

INSPIRE training platform

What is it?

The INSPIRE online training platform contains several training resources, both from the Commission and EEA and from research projects and other stakeholders jointly commissioned by the EC INSPIRE team and the ELISE project. 

These courses are useful to:

  • promote the INSPIRE directive, the scope of application and benefits that it entails.
  • also, provide technical information about how to implement it and
  • how to exploit its use in Public Sector but not only.

Who is it for?

The courses have been specifically conceived to support managers, public Servants and technicians in the implementation of INSPIRE.
Different didactic paths are proposed for each of the users depending on the role they play. Check them here.

How to access it?

Access to this INSPIRE Training Library is free of charge, but registration is required.

Upcoming course on Location enabled Digital Government Transformation

The ELISE action is currently developing an online course to make known the potential of geographic information in the public sector and how it can be an ally in the process of digital transformation of governments.
It will be a basic course dedicated mainly to officials and policymakers. We will update this section as we have more information.
