Industry Training 2007
Presentations now online

ESA’s SME Unit organised four industry training courses in 2007
9 November 2007

ESA’s SME Unit organised four training courses in 2007 to improve and develop the skills and expertise of SMEs, and to help them meet the challenges of space requirements. All presentations are now available for downloading on ESA’s SME website's training section.

‘Writing a good proposal for an ESA ITT’ and ‘Financing innovative projects’ took place in June and ‘Components Engineering’ and ‘Quality Assurance’ took place in August. All courses were held at ESTEC, Noordwijk in the Netherlands.

Presentations are provided as pdf-documents.
