30 April 2014 – The ESA-JRC International summer school on GNSS 2014 will take place at the Technical University of Ostrava, Czech Republic from 21-31 July 2014. It’s objective is to provide attendees with a comprehensive overview on satellite navigation, starting from the GNSS system, its signals, the processing of the observations in a receiver, and finally, determining the position-navigation-time (PNT) solution.
Much lab work will be carried out to get attendees really “hands-on”. In addition, lectures on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and Patents, as well as on business aspects, are given. The future of satellite systems is also discussed. Main emphasis will be put on the development of a group project using innovative ideas and covering all aspects from the idea, business plan, technical realisation till the marketing of the product or the service.
The program is open to graduate students (with a first university degree), Ph.D. candidates, early-stage researchers and young professionals willing to broaden their knowledge.
Internationally renowned scientists and specialists will give the lectures, as well as the practical exercises and lab work.
The following participants can register for the ESA Summer School:
- Graduate students (more than 3 years studies)
- PhD students and postdoctoral researchers (< 35 years)
- Young engineers and professionals from industry and agencies (< 35 years)
The number of participants is limited to 50 – early registration (reduced rate) is recommended (first come, first serve).
