Held on 3 days of 31 October, 1st & 2nd November, the Erasmus Mundus symposium on geography, earth and environmental studies took place in Lisbon-Portugal. This program had been initiated by the EM International Master on Geospatial Technologies and 12 other EM programs relative to geology, earth and environmental studies have been invited to participate.
From IMRD, Yazdan Soltanpour has presented a work titled "Tectonic assessment of Alborz and Zagros mountains". You may find the presentations, photos, and the videos of each presentation in the following link:
Apart from the work presentations of students, there have also been presentations by professors from Munster and Lisbon universities on GIS application and even on general facts such as academic writing.
This program has been sponsored by Erasmus Mundus Student and Alumni Association (EMA) and they declared that programs such that incorporate different programs of EM (and in some cases the inter-programme initiatives) can be covered by EMA. It had been encouraged to hold this symposium every year by one of the 13 EM relative programs. When shall be IMRD's turn?
