Registration open for ESA Academy’s Earth Observation Remote Sensing Workshop

on 24 August 2022

The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) invites students to apply to ESA Academy’s Earth Observation Remote Sensing Workshop, which will be held from the 5 to 9 December 2022 in ESA Academy’s Training & Learning Facility (TLF) located in ESEC-Galaxia, Belgium. The deadline for applications is 27 September 2022.

ESA is running this Earth Observation Remote Sensing Workshop to support future generations of EO scientists.

During these five days, university students will become acquainted with the basics of Remote Sensing, along with an overview of ESA’s EO satellite missions. Students will also learn about the science of radar and optical remote sensing, as well as data fusion. Delivered by EO experts from ESA, academic institutions and industry, emphasis will be given to gaining practical skills and putting them to use through group exercises using actual remote sensing tools.

Upon completion of the Workshop, students will be evaluated via an online questionnaire and will receive a certificate of participation as well as a course transcript, allowing them to request ECTS credit(s) from their respective universities.

In order to participate students must be aged minimum 18 years old, have no or limited professional experience in relevant scientific, engineering, or other space-related topics, be a citizen of an ESA Member State, Canada, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Slovakia and Slovenia, be enrolled as a Master or PhD student in a university for the academic year 2022-2023 and be studying an engineering or science subject.

The selected students will be sponsored by ESA to cover accommodation and meals, as well as up to 300 Euros for travelling to Belgium.
