The 2nd Symposium on Space Educational Activities (2nd SSEA) event follows the first symposium which was initiated and hosted by the Center of Studies and Activities for Space (CISAS) ’Giuseppe Colombo’ of the University of Padova in December 2015, and will continue to be an excellent forum for students, professors, and professionals from around Europe to present and discuss their educational space-related projects and programmes. The purposes of the symposium are:
- To constitute a forum that enables a survey of educational space-related activities;
- To share experiences among students and young professionals from different countries and to provide networking opportunities with international professionals within the space sector;
- To increase the understanding of academic, industrial, and government organisations of the importance of hands-on activities and specialised training and learning opportunities for the next generation of space scientists and engineers.
The symposium focuses on tertiary education (University level).
