A brief history…

Unisciel is a GIS (Scientific Interest Group), and one of the 7 French UNT (Thematic Digital University).

Digital Thematic Universities have been created with the support of the Technology branch at the Ministry of National Education, Higher Education and Research, and aim at gathering institutions working on similar subjects in order to share OERs based on common frameworks. The second aspect is to open the diffusion of these OERs, thus taking part in the global open access movement. The creation of a Digital Thematic University in the basic sciences field thus appeared necessary, particularly to reinforce these subjects attractiveness towards the youth.
