ESA/JRC International Summerschool on GNSS 2020
The 13th edition of the ESA/JRC International Summerschool on GNSS 2020 will be held in Krakow, in the South of Poland. This location has become possible through the generous support of the European Space Agency (ESA), the Joint Research Centre (EC) and various supporters.
It is the objective of this Summer School to provide the attendees with a comprehensive overview on satellite navigation, starting from the GNSS system, its signals, the processing of the observations in a receiver and finally determining the position-navigation-time (PNT) solution. Many lab work will be carried out to get attendees really ‘hands-on’. In addition, lectures on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and Patents as well as on business aspects are given. The future of satellite systems is also discussed. Main emphasis will be put on the development of a group project using innovative ideas and covering all aspects from the idea, business plan, technical realisation till the marketing of the product or the service.
