HESGEO.blog is a science communication tool to bring research closer to society.


Check out the latest posts:
  • Meet the team: SOCIAL PROCESSES AND URBAN RESILIENCE
    Climate issues and how our society is going to face them up are critical topics. Follow the article about the next HES-GEO team that focuses on social processes and urban resilience.
  • Meet the team: CULTURAL ECOSYSTEM SERVICES
    The relationship between the landscape characteristics of green spaces and the cultural ecosystem services they provide is at the core of the interest of another HES-GEO research team. Continue reading to know more about it.
  • Why and how? – Attitudes and intentions to food waste mitigation
    Food waste mitigation is a topic of greater discussion now than ever. Just in the EU, close to 88 million tonnes of food are wasted. For the HES-GEO blog, Magdalena Kubal-Czerwińska takes up the debate.

As the goal of the HES-GEO project is to enhance existing research capacity, it is crucial to focus on a diverse array of training activities that will help research teams overcome various challenges and communicate the journey as such. This blog thus helps to increase HES-GEO overall visibility and establish research- and stakeholder-oriented networks, supporting the sustainability of the future actions of the Center of Excellence.

This blog is an opportunity to communicate central aspects of the HES-GEO research interests in a short format relevant to a broad audience. It provides worthwhile insights into current research developments and hidden processes behind research results, such as the everyday difficulties and barriers researchers face or the human side of academic research.

What we do

  1. Training young post-doctoral and early career researchers in academic sofskills and geospatial and EO technologies;
  2. Setting up research teams at the Jagiellonian university supervised by our experienced partners whose goal is to develop and submit competetive researc proposal;
  3. Establishing Center of Excellence (CoE)
