8 March @ 09:00 16:00

On March 8th, Esri Belux organizes a STUDENT DAY in collaboration with Digitaal Vlaanderen. This event will take place at the Hendrik Conscience building, near the Brussels North Station. The day will be filled with a variety of GIS inspirations from different fields. You can expect workshops, guest speakers, and interesting customer cases, among other things. Furthermore, we will also provide lunch and drinks, so be sure to mark March 8th in your calendar!

This event is for all academics: teachers, researchers, and students. We are not only addressing established GIS users, but also fields of study where GIS is just beginning to emerge. Think, besides geography, of areas such as topography, engineering, economics, but also marketing or history, for example. Therefore, we kindly ask you to pass on this event to the students and colleagues of the respective faculties. We look forward to it, see you then! (Languages spoken: Dutch, French, and English)
