The 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 an 

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 invite researchers, MsC (or close to completion) and PhD students, professionals, trainers and educators and from Lithuania, Latvia, Bulgaria, Slovakia and Slovenia (PECS – Plan for European Cooperating States) who use EO technology within their daily work.

PROGRAMME

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