About the event

The second edition of the Summer School on Space Research, Technology and Applications will be held in the National Astronomical Observatory – Rozhen, Bulgaria. A versatile coverage of topics from theoretical astrophysics to engineering and computing have been pre-selected. Both lecturing and training sessions are intended for the participants distributed over one week. At the end of the school, each team will present the results from their practice led by an experienced mentor. In addition each participant is expected to present a short overview on their PhD topic during the dedicated PhD session.

A limited number of registration fees can be waived. More information will be announced soon.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions the number of participants we can accept on site is limited.

Participants will receive a certificate after successfully completing the courses.
