Two memoranda of understanding has been signed by the AGILE in Lund. First with University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS) has been renewed for the next two-year period. The AGILE and the UCGIS agreed to continue cooperation in several organisational and scientific fields. One of the most important is to collaborate on the “GIS&T Body of Knowledge” a project developed by the UCGIS and supported by the EO4GEO project with the AGILE involvement. The MoU has been signed by Karen Kemp, President-Elect of the UCGIS and by Martin Raubal, Co-chair of the AGILE.
The second MoU has been signed with the International Cartographic Association represented by Sara Fabrikant,Vice- President. The prolonging MoU emphasises the scientific cooperation in the field of GISc and mapping. In January 2018 AGILE, ICA and EuroSDR organised together in Paris a workshop on Mapping Places for Digital Natives - Literature, practical experiences, perspectives.
