Currently I am coordinating the EO education initiative ‚EO College‘. In collaboration with the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) as well as numerous Partners, we are shaping the education sector in the field of Earth observation. The core activities of our projects are the organisation of a yearly summer school on Radar remote sensing, the conception and operation of the learning portal EO College as well as the conception and creation of online courses on Earth observation topics.
