Earth Observation Training in Science and Technology at the Space Research Centre of the Polish Academy of Sciences

Project description

Enhancing Poland's space research capabilities, networking

Poland’s Space Research Centre of the Polish Academy of Sciences (CBK PAN) will receive a big boost. The EU-funded EOTiST project will work to enhance the centre’s science and technology capacity. It will also facilitate the collaboration with other European centres of excellence in order to enable Poland’s achievement of excellence in research of Earth Observation products’ assimilation in the ecosystem assessment and monitoring. One of the project’s objectives will be to upgrade the research profile of the CBK PAN and the profile of its staff by training of personnel. It will organise workshops, staff visits, and online courses, targeting PhD students, early stage researchers, postdoctoral students, researchers and administrative staff.

Objective

EOTiST aims to enhance the S&T capacity of the Space Research Centre of the Polish Academy of Sciences (CBK PAN) and to achieve excellence in research of EO products’ assimilation in the ecosystem assessment and monitoring by starting close collaboration with 3 European centres of excellence: CERTH, CREAF, CNR. Specific goals are to be pursued:
- Enhance S&T capacity of the coordinating institution. Training activities targeted to the exact needs of the CBK PAN constitute the key part of EOTiST, after a dedicated SWOT analysis. Existing non-exploited potential will be enhanced and further training of the personnel and affiliated scientists performed.
- Upgrade research profile of the CBK PAN and the profile of its staff by mobilizing and training of personnel. Key training actions include workshops, staff visits, and on-line courses and target PhD students, early stage researchers, postdoctoral students, researchers and administrative staff.
- Increase research excellence and stimulate innovation of the coordinating institution. EOTiST will build on CNR, CREAF and CERTH excellence and their networks to advance CBK PAN research and innovation performance through knowledge transfer and exchange of best practices.
- Achieve sustainable progress and future development for the today’s seed group in CBK PAN. The partners will develop a strategic partnership based on reinforced dialogue and consultation. EOTiST will explore collaboration chances with local stakeholders and perform a market and product feasibility analysis to introduce new products/ technologies within Poland.
- Promote the involvement of early stage researchers in the CBK PAN. Early stage researchers will be acquainted with specific knowledge and technical skills to organise scientific work and present research results.
- Develop joint research initiatives and projects. Partners will mobilize existing networks and resources to formulate research initiatives and projects.
- Enhance CBK PAN management skills
