Are you an early career researcher or amateur astronomer that would like to develop your science communication skills, as well as learning more about making ground-based observations in support of space missions?

Europlanet 2020 (RI) and the Molėtai Astronomical Observatory (ITPA VU) are pleased to announce that they are once again holding an international research summer school, Space missions: ground-based observations and science communication, from 11th-21st June at the Molėtai Astronomical Observatory in Lithuania. Morning sessions will focus on ground-based observations required by space missions and the afternoons will be devoted to science communication training, with sessions on writing for the media, engaging with schools, exhibition design, engaging with the public, and social media. The Summer School is also an opportunity to explore beautiful Lithuania, with an excursion to Vilnius and Trakai.  The school is orientated to PhD students and early career scientists, however amateur astronomers will be provided with the additional scientific support during lectures and observations.
