Venue: ICT Informatics Lab, Level -1, Block B, Faculty of ICT, University of Malta, Msida Malta
The European Space Agency (ESA), in cooperation with the Malta Council for Science and Technology (MCST) and the University of Malta, is organising a Training Course on Earth Observation at the University of Malta between 27 - 30 April 2020.
The main aim of this course is to promote and disseminate Earth Observation (EO) technologies in various scientific and industrial fields providing theoretical information followed by practical software exercises on ESA and Copernicus datasets. The training relates to SAR for land classification, SAR and Optical remote sensing for marine and atmospheric applications. The practicals will demonstrate the use of the Sentinels Application Platform (SNAP) software, the ESA Atmospheric Toolbox and the Copernicus Research and User Support (RUS) Service. Additional details available in the tentative agenda linked below.
Cost: Free for accepted registrants – participants are to cover their own travel and accommodation costs.
The Training Course is dedicated to researchers, students, PhD students and young professionals from Malta, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania and Slovakia that use EO technology within their research or work and would like to improve their knowledge of remote sensing. Applications from ESA member states may also be considered, but with a lower priority. The official language of the course is English and all participants are expected to have a good command of the language. The course capacity is limited and registration is required.
As part of the Training Course, a half-day session will be dedicated to a presentation of the research outcomes of the SAT-FIRE (SATellite data Fusion and Imaging Resolution Enhancement for coastal areas) project, which was awarded funding by the MCST through the Space Research Fund.
For any queries do not hesitate to get in touch.
