Information Event for Third IEEE GRSS Student Grand Challenge
About the Webinar
The IEEE GRSS Student Grand Challenges are 1-1.5 year projects intended to engage students and young professionals in solving a complex engineering problem within the scope of GRSS and other Societies (e.g., Aerospace and Electronic Systems, Antennas and Propagation, Ocean Engineering, Computer, Microwave Theory and Techniques) and other entities (e.g., Van Allen Foundation).
The third edition of the Student Grand Challenge is a partnership between IEEE GRSS and the Van Allen Foundation. The Van Allen Foundation is a partnership foundation of the University of Montpellier and supports the Montpellier University Space Center where students are trained in space jobs through the development of nanosatellites as part of projects and internships. IEEE GRSS is an international professional Society that seeks to engage students and young professionals in contributing to the solution of complex engineering problems within the scope of the Student Grand Challenges. IEEE GRSS has in the past sponsored two previous Student Grand Challenges related to remote sensing based on drones or remotely piloted aircraft systems, and nanosatellites.
The two organizations have agreed to join forces in publishing the present call for ideas. While the Van Allen Foundation is addressing the wide community of scientists, engineers and students, GRSS is focusing on students and young professionals in the global geoscience and remote sensing community. There are two calls for the Third IEEE GRSS Student Grand Challenge: The first one closed on April 30, 2021, the second one will close on June 30, 2021.
