The European School of Antennas (ESoA) initiative started in 2004 from a group of institutions composed by Universities and industrial research centers of 12 different European countries belonging to ACE (Antenna Center of Excellence).
The school is constituted by a highly qualified integrated set of advanced one-week courses, distributed in the most accredited European antenna research centers. The best teachers present lectures in antennas and propagation. The courses are repeated every two years updating the content.
The ESoA Board is constituted by 36 members representative for each of the institutions including prominent personals of the Antennas and Propagation community, among which 14 IEEE Fellows.
