Apply for ESA Academy’s Human Space Physiology Training Course 2019

on 28 December 2018

The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) invites medical and life sciences university students to apply to a training course being offered by ESA’s Education and Space Medicine Team that will be held between 19 and 22 March 2019. The deadline for submission of completed applications is 14 January 2019 at 23:59 p.m. CET, 00:59 Romania local time.

This training course is addressed to Bachelor and Master university students studying medicine, allied healthcare subjects, life, biomedical or biological sciences.

Two groups of university students will be able to take part in this training course from two different ESA sites connected through videoconferencing. When selected, students will be invited to the ESA Academy’s Training and Learning Facility at ESA’s European Space Security and Education Centre (ESEC) in Belgium, or to the European Astronaut Centre (EAC) in Germany.

Through face-to-face and videoconference lectures delivered from each location, students will discover how spaceflight represents a significant physiological challenge to the human body.

The eligible students must fulfil the following criteria at the time of application: be aged between 18 and 32; be a citizen of an ESA Member or Associate State; be enrolled as a full-time Bachelor or Master student (or equivalent) in a university for the year 2018-2019 (not graduating before the end of the training course); be studying medicine, allied healthcare subjects, life, biomedical or biological sciences.

ESA’s Education Office and the Space Medicine Team will cover the costs of accommodation and meals, as well as up to 200 euros for travelling to Transinne, Belgium or Cologne, Germany.
