The Earth Observation in the Raw Materials Sector is a 2-weeks event consisting of 2 short courses running in parallel and culminating with a user forum. The first course, organised by EIT RawMaterials, introduces Earth Observation data processing for beginners. The second series of events is organised by the Helmholtz-Institute Freiberg for Resource Technology (part of Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden Rossendorf (HZDR)), a start-up, TheiaX, and the H2020 project INFACT. It will give the attendees the opportunity to learn about sustainable exploration, drill-core scanning as well as machine learning methods for Earth Observation. Finally, the user forum will consist of keynotes given by experts as well as discussions moderated by RawMatCop fellows. 


Registration is mandatory for each event.
