Our Objectives.

NODE wants to create and become part of a network between (GIMA)-students, alumni and external parties. In order to do this, we have created several objectives

Improve communication.

Improve communication, integration and interaction between students in different GIMA years.


Create a foundation for informal social interaction between GIMA students. We hope to realize this by organizing social activities during the GIMA contact weeks

Crossing boundaries

Establish a network between GIS master students in the Netherlands (and beyond).

Become the next NODE board .

About us.

NODE was founded in 2015 by a group of GIMA-students. It started with the idea of organizing an introductory event, but we soon noticed that there was a need for more than just one event. We are currently in the process of setting up a formal union and organizing a GIMA-day, an eventful day full with lectures about GIMA-related subjects.
