EcoCAR Project Delegation visited ACA*GIScience

A delegation of Chinese and German researchers, led by EcoCAR Project Coordinator Prof. Dr. Umut Halik, has visited the ACA*GIScience office in Bishkek on October 25, 2014. This project has been started within the initiative "Between Europe and the Orient – A Focus on Research and Higher Education in Central Asia and the Caucasus" supported by the Volkswagen Foundation in 2014, and aims at the ecosystem assessment and capacity building for sustainable management of flood plains along the Central Asian rivers Tarim and Naryn.

ACA*GIScience is joining this project consortium as a partner to contribute through applications of Remote Sensing and GIS technologies in realization of the project tasks.
