This course aims at bridging the gap between environmental / public policy professionals and cutting-edge technologies and their practical application by bringing ICT developers and experts (e.g. the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs and Esri) into the classroom and arranging their direct communication with decision making groups, making data and emerging technologies more accessible, usable, and relevant for decision-making.
A scientific workshop about finishing the project “Establishment of an environmental monitoring and remote sensing laboratory at Károly Róbert University College” was held at the College at the end of 2012. This new laboratory provides an excellent opportunity for students to get information about the most recent Remote Sensing technologies and methods.
On 7 February 2012, during the Forty-ninth session of the Scientific and Technical Subcommittee of the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (COPUOS), UN-SPIDER and the Karoly Robert University of Hungary signed the cooperation agreement to incorporate the Research Institute of Remote Sensing (RIRS) of the Faculty of Natural Resources Management and Rural Development in Gyongyos, Hungary, as the newest Regional Support Office of the UN-SPIDER Programme.
