During the project, 72 young talented students in Europe will test their competences in five training camps where there will be a three days Skills competition simulation. These project weeks are the key for the training and give the students a chance to test how it feels to work with strict limits, with a time pressure and under constant evaluation. The students will not only be the competitors but are also asked to work as judges for one another with a similar criteria as in the skills competitions. Students will have a chance to reflect the methods used in the tasks not only technically but also from cultural view point.

Surveyors’ Opportunities for Collaborative Surveying (acronym SOCS) is a strategic partnership initiative focused on strengthening and sharing of key competencies in surveying and enhancing internationalisation of the sector. The project is based on the idea of collaborative learning in transnational groups prior to and during four workshop weeks, each focusing on chosen surveying theme reflecting working life processes. Themes cover gathering data (for example by drones) and processing the data with different software, such as 3D modelling. 

Workshop weeks are a mixture of different learning methods, small transnational group work, discussions, comparisons, building up summaries and presentations, active hands-on surveying work and company visits. Furthermore, work safety issues are included in each workshop according to theme of the week. Participating students will build up a five-language surveying glossary in English, Finnish, German, Italian and Norwegian of the key concepts. In all, during the process, 60 surveying students will have possibility to participate in workshops.
