Prof. Antonia Maria Brovelli Chair of UN-GGIM Academy network
The UN-GGIM Academic Network is a coalition of recognized universities, research institutes and education centers involved in research, development and education on geospatial, land information and related matters. Politecnico di Milano is one of the italian members of the Academy together with Università la Sapienza di Roma and IREA CNR. The Academy is run on a volunteer basis with the primary goal of supporting the UN-GGIM Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management. This Committee of Experts represents the apex intergovernmental mechanism of United Nations for making joint decisions and setting directions with regard to the production, availability and application of geospatial information within national, regional and global policy frameworks. The UN-GGIM Academic Network aims to assist the Committee with the development and management of global geospatial information and promote its use to address key global challenges. Among the main functions of the Academy it is worth reminding:
– to provide academic counsel and guidance to UN-GGIM concerning strategic knowledge, research, education and training;
– to provide a forum for coordination and dialogue among academics and researchers from the geospatial information management community
– to encourage members to undertake work that is able to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN
– to undertake activities that foster collaboration between universities and research groups at an international level
