Launch of Geoinformation Center for Empowerment of Western Balkans Agriculture

10 April 2024

On 27 March 2024, the official kick-off event for the project " Establishment of a Geoinformation Center for the Western Balkans " took place at the Agricultural University of Tirana (AUT). IAMO is setting up a Geoinformation Center for the Western Balkans in cooperation with AUT and with financial support from the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture.

The center is to support the agricultural sector of all Western Balkan countries in the EU accession process. The project aims to improve the training and scientific exchange of university and government employees in the field of geodata analysis. To this end, IAMO and AUT will organize courses, summer schools and seminars on geographic information systems and remote sensing technologies. The project will also collect geodata from the entire Western Balkans region relating to agriculture and land use and make it available online in a data portal.
