6th ESA Training Course on Radar Remote Sensing

ESA / University of Maribor / Laboratory for Electronic and Information Systems / Ministry of Economic Development and Technology

7 - 11 September 2015

Maribor, Slovenia


In 2015 ESA in cooperation with the University Maribor and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science is organising a Radar Remote Sensing training course that is addressed to participants from universities, scientific communities, institutions and organisations that are making use of geoinformation. The course will provide participants with an introduction to radar remote sensing technology as well as examples of end-user applications of this technique within the environmental field.

The course is dedicated to researchers, students, PhD students, and young professionals from Slovenia, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia and Bulgaria (PECS/Plan for European Cooperating States) that use EO technology within their daily work and would like to improve their knowledge of radar remote sensing.

More information about the course can be found on the course website.
