The European Commission has selected the Stantec team, featuring GAF AG as a partner, to support the EU knowledge hub dedicated to Science, Technology, and Innovation (STI), space and earth observation, and digital development.

Known as the Knowledge Hub Digital (KHD), this facility aims to boost international cooperation and enhance knowledge sharing in the area of digitalisation, in line with the global ambition of the European Union (EU) to promote a fair, inclusive, gender-responsive, sustainable, and human-centric digital transformation worldwide.

The contract requires the provision of highly specialised knowledge and technical assistance during the creation and development of the knowledge hub.

With its more than 35 years of extensive expertise and worldwide experience in earth observation, geoinformation, the Copernicus Programme and related applications, GAF is an ideal partner in this regard. This, when combined with expertise in other thematic fields such as information and communications technology (ICT), digital innovation, entrepreneurship, digital governance, and digital ecosystem analyses and planning, will contribute to the development of the project, facilitate the EU’s partnership with other countries and promote stronger collaboration in the STI, space, and digital sectors.
