Event description

Description

On Monday, 25th of March 2019 SGAC will welcome both past and present members for a day of discussions and networking hosted by the European Space Agency in Paris.

Since its creation in 1999 thousands of students and young professionals have been involved in the SGAC network. Our alumni are spread all over the world, contributing to the development of the space field, often from key positions in either private or public entities. The event will be an opportunity for our present members to meet and be inspired by our successful alumni experiences, and to discuss the future of space activities along with the role of SGAC in these activities.
