Advanced Training Course on Land Remote Sensing

Leicester, UK


The European Space Agency (ESA) is organising an Advanced Training Course on Land Remote Sensing dedicated to training the next generation of Earth Observation (EO) scientists to exploit data from EO missions (e.g. the Copernicus Sentinels) for science and applications development.

The course is part of ESA’s EO Science for Society – Scientific Exploitation element of EOEP-5 (the fifth cycle of ESA’s Earth Observation Envelope Programme).


Post graduate, PhD students, post-doctoral research scientists and users from European countries and Canada are invited to apply to the 5-day course which will be held at the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom during 10–14 September 2018.

Research scientists and students from all other countries are also welcome to apply, subject to availability of spaces.

The official language of the training course is English.

No participation fees will be charged for the training.


The Advanced Training Course on Land Remote Sensing aims at:

  • Training the next generation of scientists on remote sensing of land surfaces and processes;
  • Explaining the theoretical principles, processing algorithms, data products and their use in applications;
  • Introducing tools and methods for the exploitation of EO satellite data, in particular the Sentinels;
  • Stimulating and supporting the exploitation of ESA and non-ESA EO data for land remote sensing science and applications.
