Are you an SME interested in working with ESA and would you like to learn more about how to apply ECSS standards? Perhaps you are already working on space projects but would like to refresh your knowledge on applicable project management, engineering and product assurance standards.


If so, join the ECSS livestream on 14–16 March and follow five standardisation training sessions online.

A Level 1 introductory training will describe the ECSS standardisation system and present the complete set of ECSS documents explaining how best to apply them in space projects. In addition, four specialised ECSS modules will be offered: Systems Engineering (E10), Software Engineering (E40), Software PA (Q80) and Project Management. These cover the technical aspects of the ECSS disciplines at system level.

Due to the nature of the livestream, it will be possible to join all or only selected sessions.

Date Morning Afternoon
14 March  9:00 – 12:30 Level 1 13:30 – 17:00 E10 (Systems Engineering)
15 March  9:00 – 12:30 E40 (Software Engineering) 13:30 – 17:00 Q80 (Software PA)
16 March  9:00 – 12:00 Project Management

Note: All times given are CET.

It is the first time that modules from the ESA ECSS training series will be streamed live and can be followed remotely. Each module consists of a presentation by an ECSS expert followed by a Q&A session for on-site participants.

The ECSS livestream is organised by the SME Office as part of its SME Initiative, in collaboration with the ESA Requirements, Standards and Engineering Knowledge Office, which also organises multiple on-site training sessions throughout the year, see here
