Education and Training

The activity on Education and Training aims at promoting airborne research in the European academic community by training (theoretically and practically) early-stage researchers and university lecturers in airborne atmospheric research and airborne remote sensing of the Earth surface. The specific objective is to attract young and talented scientists and develop their interest in airborne research, hence increasing and improving the use of the European Infrastructures. The activity on Education and Training also aims to exchange knowledge and know-how between aircraft and instrument operators.

EUFAR offers four training opportunities:

  • Training Courses on airborne research. (ET-TC)
  • Join an Existing Campaign. (ET-EC)
  • Participation in the design of a new field campaign, in the frame of Transnational Access. Tutoring by experienced scientists. (ET-TA)
  • Visit to aircraft/instrument Operators for exchange of knowledge and know-how. (ET-VO)

EUFAR provides 100% support for:

  • Training
  • Flight costs of research aircraft and instruments
  • Travel and Subsistence (T&S) expenses



Training Courses on airborne research (ET-TC)

EUFAR organises training courses for promoting airborne research in the European academic community. The courses provide a theoretical background on Earth Sciences and associated physical processes, as well as training on airborne instrumentation, measurement, data processing and analysis. The participants are also trained by aircraft operators on issues specific to airborne operation. Depending on operators restrictions, participants might have the opportunity to design a flight plan and participate to a flight experiment. The data are then processed and analysed with the support of tutors, who are experienced users of airborne facilities. The selection of the participants is performed by the EUFAR Education and Training evaluation committee. After the training course, the participants will be requested to write a scientific report.
