The 11-day event is open to graduate students that have studied more than three years; Ph.D. students and postdoctoral researchers younger than 35 years old; and young engineers and professionals in the industry who are less than 35 years old.
Participants will learn a comprehensive overview of satellite navigation, starting from the GNSS system, its signals, the processing of the observations in a receiver and determining the position-navigation-time solution. They will be able to work hands-on in JRC labs and attend lectures on intellectual property rights, patents, business insights and the future of satellite systems.
There also will be a comprehensive group project, where participants will use their innovative ideas to develop a product or service and create a business plan, technical realization and marketing of that product or service.
Lectures, exercises and lab work will be given by internationally renowned scientists and specialists.
