The experience with the Heidelberg Univ for the Hayian Typhoon was very interesting. Andrew first gave a video session through Skype. Then, specific tasks were reserved for the Heidelberg Univ.

Other then the contribution for mapping, some students might be interested by the software development aspect. For example; some plugins might be developped for the JOSM editor.

There are various ways to collaborate. The students should not hesitate to come and discuss on this list. For major crisis; it is also interesting to come and discuss with us on the various communication channels we use for the Activation.

Another university doing work is Heidelberg University in Germany.
There are several professors there who teach OSM in their classes, as
well as do research and statistics about the OSM database and its
contributors.  Pascal Neis, who runs the OSM edit counter pages is the
one there who does the statistics, but I can put you in touch with the
others there if you want.
