After the success of the pilot edition in 2020, ESA Academy is looking for 30 highly motivated engineering Master and PhD students with a foundation knowledge of Space Systems Engineering to attend the second edition of the Clean Space Training Course, to be held online over 5 full days between 3 and 7 May 2021.
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 space industry has been key in taking environmental research forward by allowing different perspectives on our fragile planet. This has helped to push the environmental crisis to the forefront of public and political awareness. However, more needs to be done to ensure that space missions themselves have lower impacts on the environment, both on Earth and in space.
ESA’s Clean Space initiative was set up in 2012 to gain a better understanding of the environmental effects of the entire life cycle of space missions and to investigate more sustainable alternatives. Clean Space’s activities fall into three main areas: Click here to read more
