SEED4NA introduced SDI & EO topics into more than 25 courses at the North African universities. Fundamentals of SDI/EO and more advanced topics were introduced through revised and newly developed
courses at the eight partner universities, resulting into a new generation of students mastering the key aspects of SDI and EO and able to contribute to future SDI/EO developments in the region of North Africa.
