The 2015 series of e-learning courses from EuroSDR will begin with a pre-course seminar, hosted by the Federal Office of Metrology and Surveying (BEV) in Vienna, Austria, from 9th to 10th March 2015. During the seminar, background material of four e-learning courses will be presented by the tutors, participants will meet the tutors and fellow participants, and the learning platform - Moodle - will be demonstrated. Local organiser of the pre-course seminar is Michael Franzen, head of the Surveying Service Division, BEV.

The seminar will be followed by four distance e-learning courses, designed for knowledge transfer from the research to the production domain (see details below). EduServ courses are designed so that they can be followed over the Internet from any location, thereby allowing participants to update their knowledge with minimum disruption. Courses require about thirty hours of online study and are completed over a period of two weeks during spring 2015.

The fee for attending the pre-course seminar is 100 €. This fee will be deducted from the course fee in case of later subscription to the e-learning courses.


600 € for pre-course seminar + 1 or 2 courses
700 € for pre-course seminar + 3 or 4 courses
100 € for pre-course seminar only
