SSEA provides an international stage for students and academics to discuss current and future Space Educational Activities in Europe and beyond, focusing on university level activities as well as opportunities for learners and educators at high school.

Talks will showcase student projects, some involving real missions in which students design and build satellites which are launched and operated in space. Other topics include: technologies for training the next generation of space engineers and scientists; how universities and employers can work together so that graduates have the skills needed by industry, and improving the representation of women in the sector.

 The online registration for the second edition of the Space Mission Predesign Challenge is open.
