European Space Agency, Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Lithuania and the Agency for Science, Innovation and Technology announce the call for applications for 

ESA TRAINING COURSE ON RADAR AND OPTICAL REMOTE SENSING

Vilnius (Lithuania), 3 – 7 July, 2017

The European Space Agency (ESA) in cooperation with the Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Lithuania and the Agency for Science, Innovation and Technology are organising a Training Course on Radar and Optical Remote Sensing. It is aimed at the promotion and dissemination of Earth Observation (EO) technology in a variety of science and industry fields.

We welcome applications from qualified researchers at MsC (or close to completion) and PhD level, professionals, trainers and educators, from Lithuania, Latvia, Bulgaria, Slovakia, Slovenia, Cyprus (ECS – European Cooperating States) and Malta, who use EO technology within their daily work. Also candidates from ESA member states will be considered (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom) and Canada, although preference will be given to ECS members.).

Deadline for applications has been extended to 31 May.

PROGRAMME

The course will provide an introduction to the basis of theory and applications of radar and optical remote sensing. It will include theoretical lectures as well as hands-on computing exercises.
