on 04 April 2017

The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) invites Romanian Masters or PhD students to participate at a training course in standardisation, organised by The European Space Agency (ESA). The event takes place between 6 – 9 June 2017, at ESA Academy’s Training and Learning Centre in Redu, Belgium. The deadline for registrations is 18 April 2017.

Working in the space field implies innovation and development so much so that there is no need to reinvent the wheel. By participating at this training course, students be familiarised with the basic notions of standardisation in the space field, as defined via the European Cooperation for Space Standardisation (ECSS). They will be guided by ESA experts, who will offer useful details on the importance of using standards and their impact on implementing space activities.

The course is addressed to candidates that respect the following criteria:

- aged between 18 – 32 years;
- are a citizen of an ESA Member or Associated State;
- are enrolled as full-time Masters or PhD students and do not graduate prior to the participation at the ESA course;
- study engineering of physics.

The selected students will receive a sponsorship from ESA, which will cover the costs for accommodation and meals. Transportation to Belgium will also be covered, up to 200 euro.

In order to participate, the students are invited to complete this form, no later than 18 April 2017.
