7th ESA Advanced Training Course on Land Remote Sensing

4 – 9 September 2017, Gödöllő, Hungary

As part of the Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions (SEOM) programme element, the European Space Agency (ESA) organises an Advanced Land Training Course devoted to train the next generation of Earth Observation (EO) scientists to exploit data from ESA and operational EO missions (e.g. the Sentinels) for science and applications development.

Postgraduate-level, PhD students, post-doctoral research scientists and users from Europe and Canada interested in land remote sensing and its applications are welcome. The 6-day course will be held at Szent István University (SZIU) in Gödöllő, Hungary, from 4 to 9 September 2017.

The Advanced Land Training Course aims at:

  • Training the next generation of European and Canadian Principal Investigators (PIs);
  • Explaining theoretical principles, processing algorithms,data products and their use in applications;
  • Introducing tools and methods for the exploitation of EO satellite data, in particular from the Sentinels;
  • Stimulating and supporting the exploitation of ESA EO and Third-Party Mission data for land remote sensing science and applications.

The team of lecturers will be composed of Principal Investigators and professors from leading universities and research institutions.
