The European Space Agency (ESA) is organizing a series of technical and/or scientific trainings that are aimed at the promotion and dissemination of Earth Observation (EO) technology in a variety of science and industrial fields.

In 2016 ESA, in cooperation with the University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy, Faculty of Geodesy and Ministry of Economy, is organizing a Radar Remote Sensing training course that is addressed to participants from universities, scientific communities, institutions and organizations 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 Bulgaria, Slovenia, Latvia, Lithuania and Slovakia (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.
