Anyone can learn intereoperability – Dis4SME will help!

Data can be exchanged seamlessly between different systems or applications without any difficulties or ambiguities. This is what is meant by interoperability. However, this seamless interaction of data of completely different types has not yet been possible in many areas – much to the chagrin of many companies and public administrations. After all, both can benefit greatly from interoperability.

Companies can save time and resources and improve the efficiency of their business processes. By integrating data from different sources, companies can get a more comprehensive picture of their business and their customers. Better decisions can be made. Public administration can take advantage of better decision making by more data being available through seamless integration. For both, new technologies and applications can be more easily integrated into their existing systems and quickly adapt to changing business or operational needs.

DIS4SME is a European project that addresses exactly this issue. DIS4SME aims to provide high quality specialized training courses on data interoperability in different areas. Location data interoperability is in focus and covers the latest technological and policy trends.

The main objective of DIS4SME is to educate and retrain entrepreneurs and managers, employees or job seekers through high quality specialized training courses. They should become pioneers for a digital Europe! In this way, the project ties in with the strategy for the digital transformation of the EU

DIS4SME leverages Geographical Information Systems International Group’s long experience in coordinating several EU-funded projects. GISIG delivers different training programs in the geospatial domain. The DIS4SME project will provide different types of courses that are designed to meet the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises. 

The providers of this training will come from universities and the private sector. This will ensure that the training programs meet the actual needs of companies and are based on the latest technological as well as political trends.

Aim of the project

The courses will be jointly designed by the consortium partners and delivered in blended mode. The materials are designed to be followed and used in the context of specific training activities. It will also be possible to download free of charge a set of training materials developed as part of the project and suitable for self-study.

Our partners

We represent over 450 businesses, government agencies, research organizations, and universities united with a desire to make location information FAIR – Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable.
