Applications now open for first ESA Academy Clean Space Training Course

on 19 December 2019

The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) is inviting engineering Master and PhD students with a foundation knowledge of Space System Design to attend the pilot edition of the Clean Space Training Course organised by ESA Academy. Applications are now open until the deadline of 5 January 2020.

This is an outstanding opportunity for students to complement their engineering studies with insight into a vital aspect of future space missions, providing a springboard to become the next generation of leading space engineers. The training is held between 11 and 14 February 2020 in Transinne, Belgium.

The pioneering Clean Space Training Course will offer students valuable insight into approaches to consider the environmental impact across the entire life cycle of a space mission. Lectures will focus on how to design a satellite that will not generate debris; will remove defunct satellites and debris already in orbit; and will be environmentally friendly. Students will even undertake group projects to learn how to design a “clean” satellite.

In order to participate, students must be aged between 18 and 32; be enrolled as a full-time MSc (BSc completed) or PhD student in a university, studying for an engineering degree and have a basic knowledge of space system design.

Further details, as well as information on the application system are available at this link.
