During this one-week school students will have a mix of academic lectures and hands-on sessions on orbitography, solar observations, and applied data reduction and analysis, during splinter sessions. The lectures and the hand-on sessions will be run by experts coming from all over Europe ; experts from the industry will explain the importance of natural space risks for their activities.
