ESA to Host 2016 Summer School on GNSS at JRC

The European Space Agency (ESA) will host its Summer School on GNSS program for students July 18–29 at the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Ispra, Varese, Italy.

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.
