With the help of guest speakers and advisors from industry, government, academia and NGOs, the program will offer:

  • Mentoring with renowned space specialists from the public sector (military and civil), private sector, and non-governmental organizations;
  • Networking with other young professionals;
  • Technical short courses presented by specialists in space situational awareness;
  • Professional development sessions to enhance participants’ effectiveness in a global environment.

The 2021 program includes three pre-event webinars with a focus on fostering innovation and entrepreneurship among the cohort. Throughout the program, participants will be challenged to solve problems to create new opportunities for space-based technologies.
