ESA’s Instruction Office and the European Reduced Gravity Analysis Association (ELGRA) are joining hands again to organise the fifth version of the ESA/ELGRA Gravity-Related Analysis Summer time Faculty, which will take area between the 22-26 June 2020 at ESEC-Galaxia in Transinne, Belgium.  

This thrilling Summer time Faculty offers an overview of the present-day analysis less than microgravity and hypergravity problems in Lifetime and Bodily Sciences and points out the curiosity and positive aspects of performing analysis and technological innovation demonstrations at unique gravity amounts. 

Above four and a 50 % days, thirty university college students will go to stimulating lectures and get the job done in tiny groups to devise concepts for potential experiments. These future experts and engineers will comprehend the options in analysis reports and professions in the European area sector.

The trainers are specialists from throughout Europe and element of ESA and/or ELGRA, freely sharing their knowledge and know-how with the college students, which includes their day-to-day get the job done and analysis knowledge in biology, human physiology, physics and engineering. 

Who can implement?
