The "7th Advanced Training Course on Land Remote Sensing" has just concluded and we had the opportunity to join with the participants at the Szent István University, Gödöllő, Hungary.
The course was attended by more than 70 students from both academic and industrial sectors, representing more than 30 different countries.
During the event a practical class on "Cloud Computing and the ESA Exploitation Platforms" was provided for the students and we had the opportunity to explain the challenges that the TEPs have faced and to give them the opportunity to experiment for themselves with the beta versions of the platforms, currently in pre-operations.
The students expressed interest in the usage of the TEPs for their research objectives and have now been invited to submit proposals to become early adopters and benefit from the expansion of the TEP user community.
The next opportunity to meet the TEP experts will be at the ESA EO Open Science where there will also be the possibility to join "hands on sessions" with each TEP.
