Training opportunities for SME from ESA SME Office in 2019

The ESA SME Office organises and supports various training courses for SMEs.

Subjects covered take account of requests from SMEs, as well as the availability of ESA experts capable of delivering state-of-the-art knowledge and know-how. Where appropriate, organisations external to ESA are also engaged as a complementary source of expertise.

In addition to the training courses organised by the ESA SME Office, from time to time bespoke training for industry of interest to SMEs is set up by other ESA departments. All courses are also listed below.

For a short description and for updates of the various courses on offer,  take a look under the training calendar on ESA SME Office training page.

Registration for courses organised in the frame of the SME Initiative programme usually opens 8 to 12 weeks prior to the start of a session. Click on the title of the course in the calendar for further information or to register.
