The European Space Agency (ESA) is organising an Advanced Training Course on Land Remote Sensing with the focus on Agriculture which will be held at Louvain-la-Neuve,Belgium, from 16 to 20 September 2019.  
The course is organised by ESA and hosted by Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain), Belgium.
The training aims at:
  • Training the next generation of scientists and professionals on remote sensing for land surfaces, with the focus on agriculture
  • Explaining the theoretical principles, processing algorithms, data products and their use in agriculture applications
  • Introducing tool and methods for the exploitation of EO satellite data, in particular the Sentinels
  • Stimulating and supporting the exploitation of EO data for agriculture remote sensing science and operational applications using the ESA Sen2-Agri and Sen4CAP systems
Postgraduate-level, Ph.D. students, post-doctoral research scientists and professionals from Europe and Canada or from the Sen2-Agri user community interested in land remote sensing and its agricultural applications are welcome to apply to the 5-day course.

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

Further information about the course and the application form are available on line @

The deadline for applications is 30 June 2019.
