The European Space Agency (ESA) is organising an Advanced Training Course on Land Remote Sensing with the focus on Earth Observation and Artificial Intelligence for Forestry. This course is dedicated to training the next generation of Earth Observation (EO) scientists and experts working in forestry domain to exploit data from EO missions (e.g. the Copernicus Sentinels) and use Artificial Intelligence (AI) for science and applications development. The course is part of ESA’s EO Science for Society – Scientific Exploitation element of EOEP-5 (the fifth cycle of ESA’s Earth Observation Envelope Programme).


The 5-day course will be held at the University of Ljubljana in Slovenia from 20 to 24September 2021 (postponed from Sep 2020). Post graduate, PhD students, post-doctoral research scientists and professionals from European countries and Canada interested in the applications of Earth Observation and Artificial Intelligence for Forestry are welcome to apply for the course. Research scientists, students, EO and AI professionals from all other countries are also welcome to apply, subject to availability of space.
