Training course on the use satellite products for drought monitoring and agricultural meteorology applications” was organised by WMO, EUMETSAT, and supported by the UN-Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). The course was held at the headquarters of the Hungarian Meteorological Service between 24 and 28 April 2017. On the training foreign experts, agrometeorologists and satellite researchers of national meteorological, agrometeorological and hydrological institutes from Central and Eastern Europe were participated (21 countries). During the week the participants heard about the different satellite products, such as Land SAF surface temperature, evapotranspiration, NDVI, soil moisture of H-SAF and softwares which can help in detection and operative prediction of the drought. Several presentations gave information about international projects also (DMSCEE, Copernicus, DriDanube). In the last two days participants  representing the different national institutes gave presentations about their activities in drought monitoring. The last part of the training was conversation between participants about the possibility of future partnerships.
