The IT platform will host 10 PhD level modules in Uzbek language and 8 modules in English.
The knowledge pool will be extended by the 52 scientific papers of three DSinGIS Regular Scientific Conferences.
The knowledge pool is open for submissions from all projects participants.
All learning materials will have joint ownership and these will be available to all the partners for implementing at the home institutions as well as to promote these among other relevant institutions.
The knowledge pool is available for free and opens access to benefit of the larger audiences.
