International Summer School on GNSS 2018

The ESA/EC Joint Research Centre school will take place from 16 to 27 July at Loipersdorf, Austria.

The Summer School will provide attendees with a comprehensive overview of satellite navigation, starting from the GNSS system itself, its signals, processing of observations in a receiver and finally determining the position-navigation-time (PNT) solution.

Much lab work will be carried out to get attendees 'hands-on' experience. In addition, lectures on intellectual property rights (IPR), patents and business aspects will be given; the future of satellite systems will also be discussed. Main emphasis will be placed on a group project - using innovative ideas and covering all aspects from the idea, business plan and technical realisation to the marketing of the product or service.

Internationally-renowned scientists and specialists will provide the lectures as well as practical exercises and lab work. The programme is open to graduate students (with a first university degree), PhD candidates, early-stage researchers and young professionals willing to broaden their knowledge. Registration is limited to 50 participants and will be accepted on a first-come basis.
