Observation for High Schools (SEOS)

SEOS is an initiative financed by the European Commission (EC) aimed at promoting the use of remote sensing in scientific education in secondary education.
Eleven partners from different European countries have cooperated on this project with the European Space Agency ESA. The Federal Space Policy has developed the module ‘A world of images’




Higher education

Belgian National Trainee Programme by ESA
Are you fascinated by space and want to carry out genuinely cutting-edge research? With the Belgian National Trainee Programme, or NTP, we give you the opportunity to work on current space projects at the European Space Agency (ESA). Satellite operations, robotics, manned and unmanned spaceflight, Earth observation and mission analysis are just some of the exciting areas of work in which our trainees have taken on demanding tasks.

ESA Academy
The ESA Academy is ESA's overarching training programme for university students from ESA member states. It provides 'hands on' space projects as well as training and education programs. More information about the projects and programmes can be found on the website of the ESA Academy.
