ESA-JRC International Summer School on GNSS 2021 postponed to 2022


Organized by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Joint Research Centre (JRC), with the collaboration of the Institute of Space Technology and Space Applications of the Universität der Bundeswehr München, the Polish Space Agency and several external sponsors, the ESA-JRC International Summer School on GNSS 2021 has been postponed to 18-29 July 2022, in view of the global COVID-19 crisis situation.

The school represents a unique chance for young satellite-navigation researchers to get all the latest high-level information from renowned, worldwide scientists and specialists.

The objective of this Summer School is to give an overview of satellite navigation, exploring the theoretical bases of the Global Navigation Satellite System GNSS, its signals, the processing carried out by signal receivers and, finally, determining the position-navigation-time (PNT) solution. As well as hands-on workshops, giving a realistic idea of the work carried out in this area, lectures will be held on intellectual property rights and patents while some business aspects will also be dealt with.

Throughout the week attendees will also have the chance of talking about the future of satellite-navigation systems and set up a group business project based on a groundbreaking idea, taking into account the product or service business plan, its technical performance and, finally, its marketing to end clients.
The program is open to postgraduate students (with a first university degree), PhD candidates, early-stage researchers and young engineers and professionals keen to broaden their knowledge. Registrations are limited to 50 participants.

This new edition will be celebrated in Krakow, the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. Situated on the Vistula River in Lesser Poland Province, the city has traditionally been one of the leading centers of Polish academic, economic, cultural and artistic life. Cited as one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, its Old Town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
