We are pleased to welcome Tomas Bata University, Czech Republic to GeoForAll. The GeoforAll  laboratory at Tomas Bata University serves as a space for students and faculty to work with geospatial facilities - there are 24 computers, 8 of them are equipped with full-featured and up-to-date OSGeoLive, the rest are based on MS Windows with current open (not only geospatial) software. The main tasks related to work in the laboratory are connected to environmental issues (natural hazards/risks, environmental modelling...) and citizen science projects (OpenStreetMap etc.).

Dr. Jakub Trojan is leading the OSGeo lab at Tomas Bata University. They are part of various  International, national and regional projects.For example,  the European COST Action 15212 (The Citizen Science COST Action to promote creativity, scientific literacy, and innovation throughout Europe), National projects such as Geographical aspects of citizen science: mapping trends, scientific potential and societal impacts in the Czech Republic (Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports) and Regional/Local projects such as  Identification of support tools in citizen science (RVO UTB) etc.

We welcome Jakub and  colleagues from Tomas Bata University for joining GeoForAll. We are looking forward to work with  colleagues in making geospatial education and digital economy opportunities available for all. Please join us at https://www.osgeo.org/initiatives/geo-for-all/lab-submission/
