The University of Nottingham is hosting a FREE Summer Schoolfrom 13 to 15 August 2012. We are looking for researchers, students and people who work in the various fields of Earth Observation, who want to find out how navigation satellites can assist their work. The School will explain how satellite navigation works and include presentations by people who are using it to produce exciting new research. There will opportunity for students who have suitable ideas to find out how they can get additional funding to develop them and even support to set up their own companies!
This opportunity is open to anyone, even if you have never heard of navigation satellites! – for more information and registration details visit www.gfg2.eu
