22 March @ 09:00 16:30

On 22 March, Esri Belux is organising a STUDENT DAY in collaboration with Digitaal Vlaanderen.
This event will take place in the VAC building in Ghent, right next to the Gent-Sint-Pieters railway station.
This day will be filled with diverse GIS inspiration from different domains.
You can expect workshops, guest speakers and interesting customer cases, among other things.
We will also provide lunch and drinks, so be sure to mark 22 March in your diary!

This event is for all academics: teachers, researchers and students.
We are not only addressing regular GIS users, but also disciplines where GIS is starting to see the light.
In addition to geography, this includes topography, engineering, economics, marketing or history, for example.
We would therefore like to ask you to also pass this event on to the students and colleagues of the relevant faculties.

The agenda and link where you can officially register will follow.
We are looking forward to it, see you then!
