Europlanet Workshop Series Comes to Ethiopia

The week started with 65 school students from 3 classes attending a hands-on laboratory workshop called ‘Light up the constellation’, led by INAF (the Italian Institute for Astrophysics).

The workshop on ‘Applications of Earth Observation Satellite Data’, held from 13-16 December 2022, has brought together 38 space technology specialists, scientists and students to discuss current topics in this rapidly developing field. The workshop was the second in a series organised under the umbrella of the Global Collaboration and Integration Development program of Europlanet 2024 Research Infrastructure (RI) that aims to support the creation of an African network in planetary science. 

The attendees comprised 24 participants from Addis Ababa, as well as 12 from wider Ethiopia, including from Semera, Wollo and Willowy Universities.
