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



EUFAR offers the opportunity for aircraft/instrument operators to exchange personnel (typically 1 week visit) in order to share their knowledge and know-how (about instrument calibration, data acquisition, etc) during field campaigns or tests at a ground facility. To be eligible, applicants should be an instrument/aircraft operator from EU member state or associated state (from the list available in the application form) and must work in an institution established in a country other than the legal entity(ies) operating the selected aircraft/instrument. The selection of the applications is performed by the EUFAR Education and Training evaluation committee. After the visit, the participants will be requested to write a report.
