The Committee is now working on the next phase, to identify points of contact and attract possible donors. This will enable TIF to support more young researchers to contribute to the conferences of the coming year and beyond by awarding more travel grants and to stimulate youth and public interest and participation in the photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences, technologies, and applications. The Committee is still open to welcome new members to pursue the worthwhile goal of expanding TIF’s activities. If you are interested – or know someone who may be interested – please contact Michael Gruber at TIF-fundraising@isprs.org. Thank you.
