Beside participants from the University of Wuerzburg and the DLR, also many colleagues from companies and a variety of national and international research institutions joined this event. The midsummer dialogue was organized by the EAGLE students. The students were keen to meet and discuss with many lecturers and guests the working conditions and opportunities in remote sensing. The organizers are very happy that this midsummer dialogue was a great success and we plan to organize it next year again with further topical talks and discussions.
The 1st EAGLE midsummer dialogue took place on June 23rd, 2017. Prof. Dr. Stefan Dech, chair of the remote sensing department and Prof. Dr. Christopher Conrad, EAGLE study program coordinator, welcomed more than 50 students and lecturers as well as current and former members of the department of remote sensing.

Our EAGLE students setup their own webpage at http://students.eagle-science.org! Read about their background, motivation and expectations concerning the EAGLE M.Sc. study program. Moreover, the EAGLE students will post news about ongoing social as well as scientific activities, excursions, internships or coding experiences. Please visit their webpage and contact them if you like to know more about the EAGLE students.
We are happy to receive the notification that the EAGLE training program is endorsed by the Copernicus Academy Network. This network aims to foster the use and benefits of Copernicus. The EAGLE program applied within the DLR and University Wuerzburg network to be part of this great initiative to develop a new tool as well as a community to maximize the use and benefits of remote sensing data. We are looking forward to be part of this great community, share best practice on earth observation training and discuss shortcomings and potential of remote sensing applications.
