ISRO Launches 'START' Training Program for Space Science Enthusiasts

ISRO has unveiled a new introductory-level online training programme called ‘Space Science and Technology Awareness Training (START)’. It is aimed at postgraduate and final year undergraduate students who are pursuing physical sciences and technology.

The programme will include different domains of space science, as well as Astronomy & Astrophysics, Heliophysics & Sun-Earth interaction, Instrumentation, and Aeronomy. It will be delivered by scientists of Indian academic institutions and ISRO centres.

The START programme is part of ISRO's efforts to help Indian students become professionals in the sphere of space science and technology, as ISRO’s space science exploration programme continues to expand into new areas. The programme is expected to offer students an introductory-level training in space science and technology, giving them an overview of various facets in the domain, research opportunities, and career options. The training will also focus on the cross-disciplinary nature of space science, giving students insights into how their individual acumen can be applied to the field. The programme is aimed at building human capacity that will play a key role in space science and research in the future.

The lectures will also include topics on the Indian space science exploration programme and research opportunities in space science and technologies. Students will be benefited as they gain exposure to different areas of space science and technology, ongoing research in different Indian institutes, insights into how their individual aptitude can suit some of the facets of space science and technology. They will also be able to gauge the cross-disciplinary nature of the subject and choose their career path accordingly.

ISRO has urged Indian academic institutions to register for the programme by submitting their Expression of Interest in the prescribed format through the Jigyasa portal at https://jigyasa.iirs.gov.in/START by May 26, 2023.
