AntarikshSociety is official 
Network institute of
ISRO-IIRS Outreach Network


The Indian Institute of Remote Sensing (IIRS) - is a constituent unit of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), Department of Space, Govt. of India. Since its establishment in 1966, IIRS is a key player for training and capacity building in geospatial technology and its applications through training, education and research in Southeast Asia. The training, education and capacity building programmes of the Institute are designed to meet the requirements of Professionals at working levels, fresh graduates, researchers, academia, and decision makers. IIRS is also one of the most sought after Institute for conducting specially designed courses for the officers from Central and State Government Ministries and stakeholder departments for the effective utilization of Earth Observation (EO) data.

ISRO has launched a new online training programme called Space Science and Technology Awareness Training (START) aimed at post-graduate and final-year undergraduate students of physical sciences and technology. The programme will cover various domains of space science, including Astronomy & Astrophysics, Heliophysics & Sun-Earth interaction, and Aeronomy. It will be delivered by eminent scientists from Indian academia and ISRO centres.

The programme is intended to provide students with introductory-level training in space science and technology, giving them an overview of different facets of the field, research opportunities, and career options. The training will also emphasize the cross-disciplinary nature of space science, giving students insights into how their individual aptitudes can be applied to the field. The programme is expected to help build a human capacity that will lead space science and research in the future.

Indian academic institutions can register for the programme by submitting their Expression of Interest in the prescribed format through the Jigyasa portal by May 20, 2023.
