The European Space Agency (ESA) is offering European students the opportunity to attend the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) held in Toronto this September.
The congress is the main annual meeting point for space professionals and this sponsorship opportunity gives students the opportunity to network with industry professionals from around the world.
The ESA will sponsor the selected students, covering their registration fees and paying a contribution towards travel and accommodation expenses.
Throughout the congress, students can interact with experts, listen to their views on the future of space and learn about the latest developments in the space industry. Students are also encouraged to contribute to the congress by presenting their own research. Some will have the opportunity to give presentations in the official technical sessions of the congress, alongside leading space experts who can often provide valuable feedback and guidance.
To have a chance of being chosen, students must submit an abstract to the IAC by 30 April. Further information on applying can be found online.
