The TAITAGIS project is a bilateral cooperation between Kenya and Finland. Based on a previous comprehensive gap analysis, TAITAGIS aims to build a critical mass of postgraduates trained using modern facilities and hands-on case studies and to be sufficiently equipped to overcome the huge human resource deficit in Applied Geoinformatics in Kenya and Eastern Africa. It is a groundbreaking collaborative venture between Taita-Taveta University (TTU), which is the hosting institution in Kenya, and the University of Helsinki, which has an outstanding track record in teaching Geoinformatics.

Robust and reliable connectivity is the backbone of this partnership between the University and Helsinki and Taita Taveta Universit, the remote training and the GIS degree programme in general.
