Education and Training

The activity on Education and Training aims at promoting airborne research in the European academic community by training (theoretically and practically) early-stage researchers and university lecturers in airborne atmospheric research and airborne remote sensing of the Earth surface. The specific objective is to attract young and talented scientists and develop their interest in airborne research, hence increasing and improving the use of the European Infrastructures. The activity on Education and Training also aims to exchange knowledge and know-how between aircraft and instrument operators.

EUFAR offers four training opportunities:

  • Training Courses on airborne research. (ET-TC)
  • Join an Existing Campaign. (ET-EC)
  • Participation in the design of a new field campaign, in the frame of Transnational Access. Tutoring by experienced scientists. (ET-TA)
  • Visit to aircraft/instrument Operators for exchange of knowledge and know-how. (ET-VO)

EUFAR provides 100% support for:

  • Training
  • Flight costs of research aircraft and instruments
  • Travel and Subsistence (T&S) expenses



In the frame of Transnational Access, EUFAR offers the opportunity for early-stage researchers and university lecturers to join a host research group to design a field campaign (scientific content, organisation of the campaign, data analysis). The selected participants will be able to actively participate in the research flights, data analysis and publications. The selection of the participants is directly made by the field campaign coordinator.
