Fostering a young, creative and inclusive European Space Community

Project description

Inspiring young people to embark on space careers

The rise of the European space industry provides new career opportunities for young people. The EU-funded spaceEU project will implement an exciting space outreach and education programme to motivate and encourage young people to embark on space-related careers. The project will also attract students towards education paths in the STEAM fields. It envisages inspiring students and helping them to develop a sense of European and global citizenship, as well as creating long-term partnerships between people from diverse cultural backgrounds inside and outside Europe. spaceEU will pave the ground for the probable future establishment of a Knowledge and Innovation Community in the field of space.
