ISS Crew Fund Scholarship

Description | Award | Scholarship Guidelines | Schedule | Contact

 

The ISS Crew Fund in cooperation with the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) introduces the ISS Crew Fund Scholarship. This scholarship is an opportunity for students and young professionals to share their views and analysis on the future of human spaceflight and exploration by submitting a one page essay.

 

Description


In 2014 the Westphalian Peace Price had been awarded to the crews of the International Space Station (ISS) to honour their international cooperation for the peaceful exploration of Space. In awarding the prize, special notion had been given to the fact that formerly competing nations have found a way to join their forces and build and operate the largest technical project in Space - the ISS. The prize ceremony took place in the German town of Muenster, North-Rhine Westpahalia, where in the presence of Federal Secretary of State, Mr. Steinmeier, and other local, state, and federal politicians the former ISS crew members Thomas Reiter, ESA/Europe, Michael Lopez-Allegria, NASA/USA, and Pawel Vinogradov, RoscosmosEnergia/Russia were presented with the symbol of the prize, a sculpture representing the heraldic horse of Westphalia. The associated prize money and other such ISS prizes now form the ISS Crew Fund and are kept in an escrow account under the custody of the Association of Space Explorers - Europe. The money is intended to be used to provide opportunities of international cooperation also for the next generations of young space professionals and foster international cooperation for peaceful research and exploration of Space. Decisions are taken by a board composed of astronauts.


During the last Ministerial Council in Lucerne beginning of December 2016, ESA Member States have decided upon the continuation of the ISS programme until 2024. Please expose us your vision of human space flight and related exploration possibilities after ISS within one page.

Norwegian Space Law & Policy Seminar

The Norwegian Space Centre, together with the European Centre for Space Law (ECSL), part of the European Space Agency, is organising a legal and policy workshop which will take place on 17 February 2017 at the offices of the Norwegian Space Centre in Oslo, Norway.

As the space sector continues to grow, the purpose of this seminar is to take stock and highlight some of the legal and policy aspects of space missions, from the institutional aspects like how these activities are regulated through to questions of liability, the registration of space objects and debris. This is intended to be an informal, introductory seminar to space law and policy. In addition to the topics of the presentations, there will be ample opportunity to network and exchange on other developments in the space sector, e.g. mega-constellations, space mining, suborbital flights and remote sensing. The panel of speakers will include representatives from the Norwegian Space Centre, European Space Agency and the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs.

As the National Point of Contact for the ECSL, the Norwegian Space Centre is committed to furthering the aims of the ECSL and fostering interest in space in Norway. This seminar aims to provide industry, academia, government, students and other interested stakeholders an opportunity to exchange and engage on these topical areas.

There is no fee to attend this seminar. If you would like to register, please complete the Registration section on the left hand toolbar of this page before 15 February 2017. You will receive an email confirmation separately.

Getting around:

 

Abesses_Metro_ParisBy Metro/Buses

The Parisian metro, train (“RER”) and bus network is a maze that will get you anywhere. If you are only planning to take the metro a few times, you can buy a set of 10 “t+ tickets”. They usually work for one trip. If you wish to have an unlimited access to the metro and buses, you can get a tourist ticket “Paris visite”, it will be valid for several days. If you are under 26, and wish to use the metro on the weekend, you can also buy a “young ticket” (which is much cheaper than the tourist ticket, the link is in French for this one) and have an unlimited access to the metro/bus network for one day only though. Where to buy the metro ticket? You will find RATP automatic counters at any subway stations (and you can switch the language to English!). You might have to go to the option "Other tickets" to find the above tickets.

You can find more informations (in English!) on the RATP website.

 Taxi_ParisBy Taxi

The metro unfortunately does not run all night. If you need to grab a quick ride home, you can either call out a taxi on the street, or call an official company such as G7 or a Transportation Escort Service (with fixed prices) such as LeCab.

Note: Although UberPop has been forbidden in France, Uber is still authorised.

Velib_ParisBy Bike / Velib

If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, you can always try a velib, Paris bike rental network. Velib station are all over Paris, you can pick up a bike at one station and leave it at another. You can simply buy the day ticket (€1,70) at the velib station, a deposit of 150e for the bike is however requested by credit card payment. Please, do remember to be extra careful when biking!

Top tourist attractions in Paris.



The Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées, Notre-Dame Cathedral, le Louvre and La Joconde! You name it! There are plenty of wonderful sights, restaurants, parks, museums to keep you busy for weeks in Paris!

If you wish to wander along the picturesque streets of the old Paris, we recommend to start with l’île de la Cité, the small island in the heart of Paris. In the neighborhood you will find the Notre-Dame Cathedral, the St Michel fountain, the City Hall, the Louvre and the pont (bridge) des arts: must see historical places of Paris.

After the old town, head North-West towards the Tuilerie garden. If you are lucky there might even be a big wheel close to the Place de la Concorde. From there, make a small detour left to take a look at the impressive Grand Palais and famous Alexandre III bridge. A few minute walk away are the Champs-Élysées, maybe the most famous street of France. Walk all the way up to the Arc de Triomphe, the view from the top is priceless (notice the chaotic traffic below you, do you think you could drive through this?).

Hop on the metro to reach the Trocadero station for the best view of the Eiffel Tower. From there it is easy to walk all the way to the feet of the famous big steal lady.

Fancy some more romantic sights: head towards the Sacré-Coeur North of Paris, or grab a glass of wine close to the St Martin Canal.

Fancy some parties: Pick a bar in the Quartier Latin close to the St Michel-Dame station. Do not forget to salute the greatest French men and women resting at the Panthéon close-by.

The Parisian members of the team have more advices and tips for you, do not hesitate to ask us directly when we meet in Paris!

Alain Maillet

Alain Maillet graduated from University Claude Bernard (ES sciences PhD and authority to supervise research – HDR). His scientific achievements were conducted within space flights simulation and MIR experiments, not only as a volunteer (ISEMSI’90 containment works) but also as a scientific investigator (containment, bed confinement, flight experiments). Alain Millet has been working at the MEDES (Physiology and Medical Space Institute, Toulouse) for 23 years. He started as a scientific coordinator before becoming the anti-orthostatic food ground simulation experiments project manager (these researches were ordered by the CNES, ESA, JAXA and NASA). In September 2001, Alain joined the CADMOS (Centre for the Development of Microgravity Applications and Space Operations Plans) which is related to the CNES in order to put the ESA’s USOC (User Support and Operations Centre) programme in place. He helped French and international scientific teams in achieving their ISS physiological experimental protocols. Amongst other tasks, this support included experiments preparation (reporting, flight procedures drafting redacting and approval process, astronauts training involvement…), astronauts’ pre and post flight condition measures, in flight experiments’ tracking and supervising and at least but not last data distribution to scientists. There are currently 30 persons working for CADMOS in 5 branches of activity (sciences of matter, fundamental physics, biology and exo-biology, life sciences and exploration). 9 persons are working within this last MEDES’ branch under the supervision of Alain Millet.
