1 FACTS ANDFIGURES 2008 ITC: gateway to international knowledge exchange focusing on capacity building and institutional development

2 Introduction Geo-information management, worldwide and innovative The International Institute for Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation was established in 1950 and is usually referred to as ITC because of its original name, the International Training Centre for Aerial Survey. Based in Enschede, in the east of the Netherlands, it is the largest institute of international higher education in the country. Knowledge field Geo-information science and earth observation consists of a combination of tools and methods for the collection, storage and processing of geospatial data, and for the dissemination and use of these data and of services based on these data. ITC provides tools that can support the processes of planning and decision making for sustainable development and the alleviation of poverty in emerging economies. By means of post - graduate education, research and project services, ITC s activities contribute to capacity building and institutional development in emerging countries and countries that are economically and/or technologically less advanced. Organisation The Institute is managed by a Directorate headed by a rector and a director for external affairs. Three bureaus manage the core processes of education, research and project services, which are executed by staff of the six scientific departments covering ITC s knowledge field. As of 1 January 2010, ITC will be a faculty (with special status) of the University of Twente (UT). The merger will be implemented in a way that preserves the distinctive character and mission of ITC. Key figures 1968 students, 1574 newly registered 511 degrees/diplomas/certificates awarded 9 degree courses, 7 diploma courses, 16 short courses, 4 refresher courses, 15 joint education courses, 9 distance education courses, 49 tailor-made courses 114 registrants for the Graduate programme 32 advisory projects 240 staff fte, which includes 18 professors Scientific departments Department of Earth Observation Science Department of Geo-information Processing Department of Urban and Regional Planning and Geo-information Management Department of Natural Resources Department of Water Resources Department of Earth Systems Analysis ITC s contribution to the UNU mission ITC is an associated institution of the United Nations University (UNU). The cooperation between ITC and the United Nations University is directed at developing and carrying out joint programmes on Capacity Building in Disaster Management and on Land Administration, and at disseminating knowledge on these and directly related issues. The programme activities are accommodated in two schools: School for Disaster Geo-Information Management School for Land Administration Studies UN Our Hope for Humankind FACTS AND FIGURES 2008 FACTS AND FIGURES 2008 FACTS AND FIGURES 2008 FACTS AND FIGU

3 research Multidisciplinary and problem oriented Interlinked research themes The Institute carries out research within the framework of a coherent research programme that addresses specific problem fields in geo-information science and earth observation. In order to ensure that new knowledge and innovation in space and resource management and in the provision of geospatial data lead to societal benefits, the programme is formulated as a number of interlinked research themes. In 2008 a new research theme was introduced: Governance and integrated spatial assessment. Research themes Biodiversity in fragmenting landscapes Carbon cycle and climate change Disaster management Earth systems science Food security and environmental sustainability Governance and integrated spatial assessment Informed multilevel governance of urban regions Land administration for informed governance Managing water scarcity Spatial data infrastructure technology Spatio-temporal data integration and visualisation Stochastic methods for image mining and data quality Sustainable urban-regional dynamics Topographic mapping Water cycle and climate Number of academic publications Type of publication Peer-reviewed articles in ISI journals Other refereed journal articles Chapters in books Books - 1 PhD theses 12 7 Total Graduate programme Within the context of each theme, research is carried out by a group led by one of ITC s professors. Each group typically comprises several expert staff members and a number of graduate students carrying out research for a PhD degree within the framework of the ITC Graduate programme. The total number of registrants in the Graduate programme at the end of 2008 was 114. In 2008, seven doctoral candidates successfully defended a doctoral thesis. Joint research agreements The Institute strives to carry out research in conjunction with partners who contribute complementary scientific expertise and/or are confronted with scientific problems that fall within the context of the mission of the Institute. To this end, the Institute pursues and has entered into a range of research agreements with partners. The resulting agreements range from general principles such as memoranda of understanding and framework agreements (22) to partnership agreements supporting specified PhD students (34). Joint research agreements have already been implemented in Argentina, Bolivia, China, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Kenya, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Nigeria, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Taiwan, Tanzania and the UK. In 2008 the Institute implemented new agreements in Brazil, Ethiopia, India, the Netherlands and South Africa. ES 2008 FACTS AND FIGURES 2008 FACTS AND FIGURES 2008

4 education A multicultural environment Our courses Over the years, ITC has developed a wide selection of courses in its degree, diploma and certificate programmes in geo-information science and earth observation. These courses are offered in the Netherlands, online and abroad by ITC itself or by ITC in collaboration with reputable qualified education organisations (joint courses). Programmes in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation Degree programmes in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation Master of Science (MSc) degree programme Master degree programme Diploma programmes in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation Postgraduate diploma programme (PGD) Undergraduate diploma programme Certificate programmes Certificate course programme and individual modules Distance education programme Refresher programme Graduate programme ITC s degree programmes are legally recognised in the Netherlands and are accredited by the Netherlands Flemish Accreditation Organisation. Eight courses are offered in the degree and diploma programmes in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation: Applied Earth Sciences (MSc, PGD) Environmental Modelling and Management (MSc) Geoinformatics (MSc, Master, PGD, Undergraduate diploma) Governance and Spatial Information Management (MSc) Land Administration (MSc, PGD) Natural Resources Management (MSc, Master, PGD) Urban Planning and Management (MSc, PGD) Water Resources and Environmental Management (MSc, PGD) (MSc = 18 months; Master = 12 months; PGD = 9 months; Diploma = 9 months) Education partnerships To address the increasing demand for flexibility in education, ITC has entered into partnerships with reputable organisations and universities in different countries. Current partnerships have been expanded and intensified within the Netherlands, within Europe (Sweden, the UK and Poland) and within other continents. Part or all of a course accredited by ITC is conducted by these organisations. In this way the ITC education programme contributes to human resources development within production organisations and education and academic institutes. Outside Europe, joint programmes have already been implemented in Bolivia, China (Wuhan, Xian), Ghana, India, Indonesia, Iran, Kenya, Mexico, Nigeria, and Tanzania. In 2008 a new course started in Ghana. Education partnerships Joint research agreements (December 2008) FACTS AND FIGURES 2008 FACTS AND FIGUR
