European Space Talk & Career Fair
An event co-organized by ESA, HEC Paris Business School and ESTACA Engineering School.
As part of the 2019 Space Talks campaign, students from across Europe are invited to take part in a special evening on October 8, from 6pm at HEC Paris, during which they can share their ideas about the objectives that the European space sector should set itself.
Higher education establishments from across Europe have been invited to connect with this event to listen to presentations and to interact with the speakers, amongst whom there will be ESA astronauts, Thomas Pesquet and Claudie Haigneré.
An exchange with the International Space Station and European astronaut Luca Parmitano is planned.
The results of an online survey undertaken by students from all around Europe will be shared with the Council at a ministerial level this year, Space 19+; this survey will reveal the thoughts of those who will be carrying out the next generation of space missions.
