Concept and Goal

Several times a year EUMeTrain organises event weeks. During such weeks a series of online lectures are presented and experts inform you on new applications of meteorological satellite data on a specific theme.

The event weeks aim to be a platform for exchange of experience and expertise between the various groups working with meteorological data.

The lectures are broadcasted with a software called Webex. This is a web conferencing and online learning environment that combines a highly interactive virtual training classroom. All lectures are also recorded and available for playback offline.
