ISRO Introduces ‘START’ Training Initiative for Aspiring Space Scientists


ISRO has launched a new online training program called ‘Space Science and Technology Awareness Training (START)’ to engage young people in the field of space science and technology.

This program is specifically designed for postgraduate and senior undergraduate students who are studying physical sciences and technology.

The space agency will execute the START 2024 initiative in the months of April and May. As a result, the space agency is requesting expressions of interest (EOI) from educational establishments, universities, and colleges in India that offer undergraduate and postgraduate courses in physical sciences and technology to host START-2024.

The curriculum will encompass various fields of space research, including astronomy and astrophysics, heliophysics and the connection between the Sun and Earth, instrumentation, and aeronomy (the study of the higher atmospheric regions of Earth and other celestial bodies in the solar system).

The execution of the project will be carried out by scientists from Indian academic institutions and Isro centers.

The START programme is an initiative of Isro aimed at fostering the development of Indian students into proficient individuals in the field of space science and technology. This program aligns with Isro’s ongoing expansion of its space scientific exploration endeavors into uncharted domains.

The program will also emphasize the interdisciplinary aspect of space science, providing students with an understanding of how their unique skills can be utilized in this discipline. The program is designed to develop human potential that will have a significant impact on space science and research in the future.

The lectures will cover the Indian space science exploration program as well as research prospects in space science and technologies. Students would benefit from gaining exposure to various fields of space science and technology, as well as ongoing research conducted in different Indian institutes.

This will provide them with insights into how their individual aptitude might align with specific aspects of space science and technology.
