The TESLA project will create vibrant, multidisciplinary training-through-research environment uniquely equipped to develop the Advanced Technologies for future European Satellite Applications. We will recruit, train and supervise 15 ESRs, who will collaborate with senior staff in academic and industrial sectors to conduct top-notch research into new and enabling technologies for satellite flexible payloads, big constellation systems and Internet of Space, satellite high-speed communications and remote sensing, as well as large satellite platforms.
The project aim is to provide all network ESRs with broad training in transferable skills to enhance career perspectives in both the academic and non-academic sectors, ensure that all network ESRs have the opportunity to complete a full PhD degree program, enhance the European space economy and business through the provision of highly skilled and mobile researchers, and to expose young researchers in extensive public engagement and outreach activities for wider economic and social impact.
