The 2018 Humane Space Physiology training course

on 26 January 2018

The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) is inviting Romanian BSc and MSc university students studying medicine, allied healthcare subjects, life, biomedical or biological sciences to apply to the 2018 Human Space Physiology training course, organised by ESA’s Education and Space Medicine Offices.

The course will be held between 20 and 24 March 2018, when selected students will be invited to the ESA Academy’s Training and Learning Centre at ESA’s European space Security and Education Centre (ESEC) in Belgium.

During the four-day course, students will learn about the range of approaches used to study the physiological effects of spaceflight, including various ground-based analogues and models of the space environment, such as long-term (head down) bed rest and over-wintering in Antarctica.

In addition, students will work on a mini-project in groups of 4 or 5 and will present it to the other participants on the final day of the course.

The students in ESEC will be joined by students at the European Astronaut Centre (EAC) in Cologne, Germany, who are registered in EAC partner programmes with the two sites collaborating via video conferencing. 

The deadline for submissions is 2 February 2018 at 23:59 pm CET, (00:59 Romania local time).

Those wanting to apply should meet the following criteria: be aged between 18 and 32, be a citizen of an ESA Member or Associate State, be enrolled as a full-time BSc or MSc student (or equivalent) in a university for the year 2017-2018 and also studying medicine, allied healthcare subjects, life, biomedical or biological sciences.

ESA will cover the costs of accommodation and meals, as well as up to 200 euros for travelling to Redu, Belgium.
