Minimize Venue

The BRIX-I workshop will be held at ESA's centre for Earth observation ESRIN, in Frascati (20 km south of Rome):


Via Galileo Galilei, Casella Postale 64
00044 Frascati (Roma), Italy


Note that there is a free bus going everyday from Frascati to ESRIN (and back), information is available here below.


ESRIN Shuttle Bus

The ESRIN shuttle bus runs between the main square in Frascati and ESRIN in the mornings and evenings according to a weekly schedule. The service is free of charge and runs all ESRIN working days.


As seats are limited, priority will be given to people working at ESRIN (staff and contractors with an ESRIN badge), then to people working at other ESA sites (staff and contractors on mission, with a badge from another ESA site) and finally to visitors. Those who cannot be accommodated on the bus will need to wait for the subsequent departure.
