Copernicus Master in Digital Earth – New Program in Erasmus +

This year, a new Geoinformatics related program titled “Copernicus Master in Digital Earth” has found its way in Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) programs list.

This year, a new program titled “Copernicus Master in Digital Earth” has found its way in Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree (EMJMD) programs list.

The program is aimed at developing Geoinformatics related skills set in its graduates and prepare competent professionals in the field of GIS and Remote Sensing.

Participating Universities

The following three universities forms the consortium to offer this program:

University of Salzburg – Austria

Université Bretagne Sud – France

Palacký University Olomouc – Czech Republic

Specialization – What is in the Package?

The program offers two tracks of specialization; GeoDsc (GeoData Science) track and GeoVIS track. The former is more pertinent to data analysis by leveraging the capability of modern technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and so on. Whereas, later is more focused on developing Geo-visualization, 3D Mapping, Cartography and Web GIS skills. GeoDsc is being coordinated by UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH BRITTANNY, DÉPARTEMENT INFORMATIQUE whereas PALACKY UNIVERSITY OLOMOUC, FACULTY OF SCIENCE, DEPARTMENT OF GEOINFORMATICS is lead for GeoVIS track.

Being a new program, this year program is open for its first intake.


Students must have to complete internship equivalent to 12 ECTS.

Career outcomes:

According to program website, the skills being disseminated in the program include:

  • Geospatial Data Acquisition and Visual / Cartographic Communication;
  • Data Modelling and Spatial Data Management;
  • Data Analytics across the spectrum of Geoinformatics: Georeferenced Data and Data Streams; In-Situ, Remote and Mobile Sensing; Statistics;
  • Spatial Analysis, as well as Dynamic System Simulation;
  • Standards for Architectures of Open and Distributed Systems and Spatial Data Infrastructures;
  • Development of Geospatial Applications.


The Erasmus+ programme scholarship is being granted to this program.

The scholarship covers all the cost and provides 1000 Euro per month stipend to the participants.

The details are available at link.

Also check other related Erasmus Scholarship programs such as MSc. Cartography and MS Geospatial Technologies. You may apply next year.

Deadline: January 2, 2019 – March 14, 2019

Applications from European and International Candidates with a ‘Geospatial’ background are welcome.

Please see official link of program website for complete details.

Hi, I am a professional Geoinformatics Engineer who has passion for knowing more and more about Geospatial technologies. My particular areas of interest are Spatial Databases, Remote Sensing, and Geospatial Analytics. In addition, I am a strong proponent of free and open-source GIS, Volunteer Geographic Information (VGI), and open geo-data such as OSM.
