The University of Tartu organizes together with the Taltech, the Estonian University of Life Sciences and the Baltic Earth an Advanced Training School on Remote Sensing/Earth Observation – Applications of Remote Sensing in the Baltic Sea region.
The Advanced Training School will take place on 15–20 September 2019 in the Võru Kubija Spa, Estonia. Application period is open until 19 June 2019, and the application process is reasonable.
This is a great opportunity for young scientists to learn quickly a lot about Remote Sensing/Earth Observation and to expand their knowledge in Remote Sensing of the natural environment. There are for example many renowned international lecturers included to the programme. The BalticSatApps project partners will be involved as organizers and lecturers as part of the programme.
