The week-long course took place at the Cyprus Institute’s premises in Nicosia, Cyprus and it was attended by 13 students from 10 different countries including Lebanon, Finland, the UK, India, Belgium and other.

The main focus of this year’s autumn school was both practical and theoretical approaches in miniaturised sensors and drone technologies and it included short lectures as well as a field trip to Orounda airfield where students had the opportunity to participate in drone test flights and collect data that were further analysed and reported. The aim of the course was to teach the students the whole cycle of scientific field work, from how to design measurements, collect data, analyse data to publishing a report of the experimental work and data.
