Young EnMAP is a group of young researchers interested in sharing ideas and experiences in the field of imaging spectroscopy. The group was founded during the first EnMAP summer school in Trier, Germany in September 2010.
The members of YoungEnMAP are PhD students, early PostDocs and undergraduate students based at various universities and research institutes in Germany. The YoungEnMAP activities include workshops, summer schools, exchange of young researchers between institutions, information exchange via the website and email correspondence. The main objectives of YoungEnMAP are:
- To enhance the communication between different research groups working in research projects funded in the EnMAP mission and other research groups with similar research focus
- To exchange methods, experiences, knowledge and best practices
- To boost interdisciplinary research approaches
- To support the development of a strong scientific offspring in the field of imaging spectroscopy
Members of YoungEnMAP regularly meet at official events of the EnMAP satellite mission. Additionally it is planned to organize YoungEnMAP “standalone events” to give all members the opportunity to acquire additional knowledge – for example in the field of statistics - that may be relevant for their scientific work. The platform www.young-enmap.org was established to facilitate communication and exchange of ideas and to discuss scientific questions among the members of the group.
