Dragon Program, a large-scale international cooperative research project initiated by the Ministry of Science and Technology of China and the European Space Agency in 2004 in the field of Earth observation, has been successfully implemented for 15 years. Its main objective is to establish a joint research team of China and Europe for the application of Earth observation data and to carry out Sino-European cooperative research on land, atmospheric and marine remote sensing. Improvement of remote sensing application technology of both sides. The Dragon Program is implemented jointly by our Center and the Earth Observation Department of the European Space Agency (ESA). Currently, four phases (2016-2020) of the project are being implemented.
The annual training activities are an important part of the Dragon Program cooperation. The training course lasts for one week. Most of the trainees are post-doctoral, doctoral postgraduates and young technical backbone of various units. The teaching experts are composed of first-class European experts selected by the European Space Agency and well-known experts in related fields in China. The content of the training course is composed of theory teaching and operation practice. The combination of theory and practice can better promote the majority of students to master the methods of software use and data processing.
Every year, the Dragon Program organizes training courses on remote sensing-related topics in a university or institute in China.
As one of the training courses in this series, the Advanced Training Course on Land Remote Sensing in 2019 will be held in Campus C of Chongqing University from Monday, 18 November, to Saturday, 23 November. Young scientific researchers, doctoral students and postdoctoral students engaged in the application of land remote sensing are welcome to register for a five-day training course, which is of a public interest and does not charge registration fees or training fees.
