In the framework of the ISWI (International Space Weather Initiative)
project and of the France-Egypt Year in 2010
, Egyptian colleagues requested the contribution of French scientists involved in the space weather field and related domains to the training of young Egyptian scientists. We have proposed then to organize a Space Weather school.
The main objective of this school is to increase the level of expertise of the Egyptian students in order for them to participate and contribute to international programmes.
Then the two important key points of this school are:
The ability to use already existing data sets and tools related to the Earth’s environment by the Egyptian Scientists. There are a lot of existing data on environmental and natural resources and less than 10% of these data are used. Those data, using new technologies, are a source of original scientific work.
The development and the use, by Egyptians Scientists, of results connecting Environmental Sciences and sustainable development by using data from instruments ground-based as well as onboard satellites for geophysics, telecommunications, etc…
